My System Specs


Everything I read also agrees that with 1GB+ of ram, the speed boost is minute. This sounds like something that would be good for a laptop more than a desktop.

Hey guys:

I found this a couple of months ago it lets Vista use any flash drive regardless or read write speeds.

Windows Vista Magazine | Use any USB stick to ReadyBoost your computer

If you have an old flash drive laying around give it a try..

With the price of memory these days, you're better off just buying more memory unless you happen to have a spare high-performance USB flash drive laying around.

Thats what I found to anyway!!
