    Talking Computer Question:Do you run without a page/swap file?

    hi guys,

    Was wondering whether it is safe to do without a swap file in my system (currently had 1 gig). Anyone who has been running without a swap/page file without crashing? How's the performance gain? Thanks..

    Normally you will need at least some swap file. If you have like 2+gb of RAM it shloud be safe to allocate a small amount of swap unless you intendd to run ram heavey apps like games... My current 1.5GB of ram runs with a 500MB reserved swap file but only uses up about 10-50 with about 900+mb of ram free..

    Better to have some because if you run out of both swap and main memory windows will hang...
