A few questions (for Steve, really) regarding Jam Man's list.Regarding Virtual Memory: what if you have 2G of memory? what if you have 4G (which I hope to eventually be able to have when they come out with fast, single rank 1G sticks)?Since I'll be using the modem and the ethernet in this box very infrequently, would disabling the modem card via the Device Manager or mobo ethernet via the BIOS give me a performance benefit?Thanks.Al.
Last but not least: Do you want to have this hot babe as your wallpaper...........Agree
It always amazes me, the amount of tweaking being done to try to get every last bit of performace out of a PC. I'm not sure the 2-3% performance increase is worth the time it takes to make all these changes to a system.
Steve--You say to set the min on the virtual memory to 100MB and the max to 800MB (initially), whereas what Jam Man's original list said to set the min and max both to the same number.I've read that before in the many incarnations of this list that has wandered through cyberspace. My understanding is that if you set the min and max to be equal, it causes the Pagefile.sys to be of a set size that doesn't grow, and thus is unable to become fragmented.Am I mistaken?This seems to be a very detailed article on Pagefile.sys (the swap file), but I've read it (although it's very late and I'm not at 100% anymore) and cannot find whether setting the min and max to the same number keeps the file from becoming fragmented:Al.
