So long as it is a Seperate physical Drive, and not a partition on the same drive it may serve some benefit.
If on another partition of the same physical disk, you will hurt performance more than anything.

Do it how you choose, but I would either leave it all with the OS drive, or put it on a secondary disc as 'System managed" size.

okay cool thanx for your response and it would actually be on another physical drive just wasnt sure if you had to do the 1.5x RAM for each page file or not and also another reason Im inquiring is that I read you dont have to worry about it getting fragmented if you set them at the same size for minimum and maximum
