My System Specs

Default Swap File

Anyone else run with their swap file disabled? I haven't tried this for years. But after running a certain feline themed benchmark yesterday it suggested that my > than 12GB swap file should be reduced in size.

This got me thinking, hey! I just upgraded from 4 to 8 GB's of ram so why not turn it off altogether? So far so good for me. I don't have an SSD so I figure it's the next best thing I can do to avoid disk swapping in games. I haven't tested in games yet but benchmarking seemed to work well.
