ReadyBoost is just a cache, that SuperFetch pulls small chunks from instead of the slower HDD. It won't increase memory or anything relating to that.

so that woulden't benfit a 1TB 7200rpm hard drive? I kinda was hopeing that it would help take some of the strain off the ram to free up more for gameing, for lower ended computers I had herd it does wonders but for higher ended computers no such luck, ill do some more research on super fetch. many thanks for pointing me in the right direction if you have anything further to comment i'd appreciate it i keep on checking back on this post

Hi.

I think more ram maybe ?
I think your computer can take 8GB Ram. ?

You won't find any more better answers on readyboost.
Not needed on yours.

If it makes you feel better....?? Why not.

Waste of a stick though.

Ready Boost is completely useless for your system - and I mean completely. All it buys you is some overhead. Use the nice sticks for something else and forget Ready Boost. I believe you have the wrong idea of what Ready Boost does. If you are interested, read this: Windows Administration: Inside the Windows Vista Kernel: Part 2
