Windows 7: Readyboost questions

24 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Readyboost questions

I got a couple of questions to ask about ready boost:

1. How much will ready boost affect my performance?
2. I was doing some research and what would you format it by? fat32 or ntfs, exfat?
3. What would have a better performance increase, if you had 2*8gb sticks or 1 16gb stick?

Right now I have 6gb of ram and I am using all of it right now to run a couple of programs I am also running windows 7 ultimate 64bit. MY computer gets sluggish around the 5.85 gb mark of usage of ram. I know ram is better than ready boost but I currently can't afford another 6gb of tri-channel memory.

Hi dangs

With the ram you have not a lot.

Ready Boost is for low ram PC's.
