1. Leave it as is - presumably giving me 2Gb physically installed RAM, plus access to another 1.5 Gb on the hard drive if needed, or
2. Set to System Managed, so it only brings VM in to play when the 2Gb is fully committed
Leaving it as is just doesn't seem logical to me when the existing setting relates to the old 1 Gb. I'd have thought I either needed to change it to System Managed, given the total RAM should be more than adequate, or if necessary, adjust the manual settings to 1.5 times (Crucial say 2 times) the new total ?
Logical or not, it simply will not make any difference one way or the other - if it aint broke, don't fix it. I too have 2Gb of actual RAM, but I have set my Virtual RAM to maximum only because it allows me to play MFSX Deluxe with higher settings.
Thanks TT, so, just out of interest, what did you set it to ?
I'm not a gamer, but do have to do a bit of audio editing whilst doing other stuff at the same time. 2 Gb was the max the PC would take, and I just wanted to ensure it'd work at its optimum irrespective of the (not too demanding) tasks I ask of it.
