Windows 7: Can I move Pagefile, TEMP and TMP files to RAMDISK?

Can I move Pagefile, TEMP and TMP files to RAMDISK?

Hi guys,
I'm trying to optimize performace of my SSDs.
Can I move Pagefile, TEMP and TMP files to my Ramdisk? Is it a good idea?
I already moved interenet cache.
I have 32GB of memory available and an 8GB ramdisk. Memory allocated to ramdisk is dynamically managed by software (Primo Ramdisk Ultimate) so only the used portion is used and not the full 8GB.
Thanks for your advice,
