best ramdisk software?

I have more than enough RAM on my machine and I have read that a virtual RAM disk may come in handy in certain situations (such as for browser cache, etc.). In the absence of the native support one needs to use a third-party program. Could anyone recommend a good one? Free would be good to try things out, but I don't mind a good paid program (as long as it does not break the bank ). Thanks in advance.

Thanks Bill! The top rated program out of that list has a free evaluation, I will try this one first.
