Re: ReadyBoost/move page file to H.D.
Yup, I bought a hard drive just for this purpose. 10 gigs, it was just a few
Just seemed so brilliant of simplicity. Raid in stripping mode kind of. So I
took it out and put in back in the XP with 2 raptors running in Raid 0. I do
not have a credible benchmark program so I brought in the ****er to play WOW
and C-strike and got 5 to 8 frames in WOW and 10 plus in CS give or take.
Then I want to remove some ram back to 1024 and see if it helps out more at
less ram. Then I just gotta swap it back and see what she will do in Vista
after I can tinker around some more with Vista
Thanks for your replies , they were warmly received and motivating
