What is the aim - what would you like to accomplish?
As an aside, pagefiles are not synonymous with "virtual memory". You can run without pagefiles, though it's a misguided idea in the vast majority of cases, but you can never get rid of virtual memory. Those two concepts operate on different levels.
"Cached" in this context means physical memory used by the OS to predictively preload what it thinks you're likely to use next (superfetch).
