Let Windows do what it does, you do what you do, and enjoy Windows 7.

You can always try running no virtual memory for better performance, but remember windows will not be able to make a crash dump file (not necessarily needed except for troubleshooting things like blue screen error messages) since virtual memory is needed to create the dump file ...
