Virtual Memory is for computers with small amounts of ram !

And I can't understand why games like Fuel won't start with no virtual memory

Has anyone ever been able to prove this? Are there any benchmarks or something that show this is true? Or do people just "feel" like it's faster.


With HDD's being 1+ TB nowadays, losing 5-8 GB to pagefile is no big deal. But it would make sense that it's not worth having anymore. I like the idea of setting pagefile to something very small like 512MB - 1GB.
