Programs or background systems?

By wompai ·

I've got 1.5 GB of RAM and 4 GB of Page file. Should I set RAM and/or CPU to programs or background systems for best performance? I'm not using my pc as a server and my page file is on a separate HDD.

As you say, you are using it as a personal computer.

That's right I'm using it as a PC. But, Someone (on this forum) told me to switch RAM and/or CPU usage to background systems when I've got a lot of RAM. I don't know what he meant by " a lot", but I think 1.5 GB RAM and 4 GB pagefile is pretty much...

Under XP, with 1.5 thats enough to make that change

Under Vista or WIn7, its not enough.
For processor scheduling, set to programs
for memory usage, set to system cache
