I'm about to make a major upgrade to my computer and I'll have to re-install the OS as a result. No biggie - but I've always put my pagefile on a seperate physical drive from my OS. But now, my OS will be installed on a 74GB Western Digital Raptor 10K RPM drive. Should my pagefile STILL reside on another physical drive even if that means it will be on a slower 7200 RPM drive?
I was going to partition up the Raptor into a 10GB OS and applications drive and a 64GB games drive. I was thinking of putting my pagefile on the games drive.
PS, In the past I've always had a very generous pagefile (3 times amount of physical RAM). With 1GB of RAM is that just wasted space now? What a more reasonable size given a GB of RAM
