Windows 7: 64x OS running 86x programs?

kaisterkai,

HOW MUCH MEMORY DO I HAVE?
METHOD 1
WIN | type RESOURCE | ENTER | MEMORY tab | PHYSICAL MEMORY section

METHOD 2
WIN | type MSINFO32 | ENTER

METHOD 3
WIN + PAUSE/BREAK | SYSTEM section



With Method 1, you will find it easy to determine how your memory is being assigned and used.

I see.. So it's just better to get another stick of ram instead of just changing the virtual ram?

Anyway.. DDR 3 rams are costing alot.. Have to wait a while..

Windows will adjust the size of your pagefile automatically based on several things. One of those things is how much RAM you have installed so I wouldn't mess with it. You will get people that will adamantly tell you, you should adjust it manually for optimum performance. I personally think its more trouble than it's worth trying to figure out what the optimal settings are so I just let windows manage it. If you have a spare thumb drive you could give ready boost a try.

I agree with aphanumeric. Do NOT mess around with the page file. Windows 7 is much smarter than you or me when it comes to calculating the ideal page file size.

The days of having to change the page file size are long, long gone.

I guess it's better to leave it to the more pros...

I'm actually worried that I might mess up my win 7...

Anyway, thanks then ^ ^
