Windows 7: Swap File Size - 2 HDDs & 2 SFs

Swap File Size - 2 HDDs & 2 SFs

I have 2 SATA hard drives and 6GB of memory. I created a Page/Swap file on the first partition of the second (non-system) disk of 9-12GB. Currently the swap file on the first disk C: drive is system managed. But I like to have a fixed size swap file on C: to reduce defragmentation. What would you recommend as a minimum/maximum size for the fixed C: swap file in this configuration?
(BTW: I was once told that you should have some swap file on C:, and to never turn it completely off)
