Convention says it should be 1.5xRAM but that does not hold good for machines with large amounts of RAM. I'd stick with a 4Gb swap file.

Was my link no use...? It seemed to give you all the info you needed and a few specific figures quoted such as:

Note If you are running Microsoft SQL Server together with MSDTC (COM+), the pagefile should be at least 1 percent larger than how much RAM is installed in the system. For example, when you are using 32 GB of RAM, the pagefile should be at least 32.32 GB of RAM.

The actual Pagefile size required varies depending on what use you are putting the machine to, hence my link telling you how to work out an appropriate setting.
