Windows 7: Page File

Page File

A computer I'm working on only has 1GB of DDR RAM. Would increasing the size of the page file help speed it up any? I would put more RAM in except that the computer is really old and not worth it putting money into.

This computer is old and is just one for me to mess around with.

Thanks for any suggestions!

AMD Athlon 3200+ XP
1GB of DDR RAM
Windows 7 x86

It is highly unlikely that altering the size of your paging file allocation will do anything for system performance.
Set it to 1GB if you'd like. If you have an SSD to put the page file on then you might notice a difference in performance, but otherwise, no.

OK, thanks. I was just curious if it would speed anything up.

12+ gig page file: What to do?
I know this has been debated a few times but… I just upgraded my i7-950 system from 6 to 12gig of RAM with some Corsair Dominator GT modules (3 x 4gig) and all is swell and good. However, I was… "reminded" by my hard drive space that the page file also increased with the additional RAM. ...
