As Shawn says, there is no 'best' option. But if you assign 4GB, you should be OK.
You should know that the Ready Boost will only buy you something if you have a really fast stick - and even then you should not expect wonders. Test the speed of your stick - e.g. with HD Tune
- and see whether the access time is within +/- 1ms. Anything much bigger will not yield any advantage because there is a certain overhead with Ready Boost for which you need some compensation.
Note: You have to let HD Tune run to the end in order to get the access time.
