I'm running Windows 7 Ult SP1 64bit (clean install) and would like to know what's the best way to set up the page given I have (2) HDD's? The drives are currently installed as follows:
1TB SATA-3 (6.0Gbit/s) Seagate 32mb cache - C: - OS
1TB SATA-2 (3.0Gbit/s) Hitachi 32mb cache - D: Game drive (currently empty)
Rosewill Challenger case
Core i5 2500K
Windows 7 64bit SP1
G-Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600 8G RAM
XFX HD Radeon 6870 1 GB 256bit PCI-e 2.1
Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme gamer
LG Blue Ray writer SATA
Antec 650 watt PSU
I currently am still in the process of installing my programs on C: drive. All my games will go onto (D:. Some of the games I'll install are FSX w/Acceleration including add-ons, COD 4 MW, Battlefield 2 BC, IL2 Sturmovik 1946, DCS Blackshark, Lock-On Flaming Cliffs 2, DCS A-10 Warthog etc..
I was told/read that placing a small page file on the OS drive (C: such as 300mb min-300 mb max) and a second page file of 3072 mb min-3072 mb max) on (D: would be most optimal in terms of performance. My main concern is PEAK performance.
