Temporary internet files and slow down in IE

I have set my Temporary Internet Files folder at 50mb.
I am on broadband and I was wondering whether to make this larger as what I have noticed is as the limit is approached (say 45mb) IE slows right down like being on 56k dial-up!


Yet when I clear the browser cache everything goes back to normal.
Why is this?
It normally happens about every fortnight.
As I am on broadband should my browser cache be made even SMALLER?
I have set the number of days to keep records in my history folder at 3 days - is this about right?

I was thinking of doing this mate but what about when you log on to the PC Advisor forum (for example) do you have to keep filling in your password and username?
If I did do this would it mean that every time I go to websites that require a password I would have to type this in evertime?
If so it sounds a real chore!
