Hi, What is the view on needing a virtual memory Page File when running a PC with say 2GB of RAM. (Win XP AMD 1.8+).
So far have tried setting to 1.5 times RAM - then tried with none at all and cannot tell any difference in performance.

Thanks for that link. Its still not obvious what should be allocated assuming large RAM amounts, if needed at all.

With 2Gb RAM, you should not need a large page-file, unless you are into serious Gaming!
