Does anybody know from their experience, what's the best option out of two possible:
1. Put a pagefile into separate HDD w/ SATAII (effectively reads at 40-80MB/s) or;
2. Put a pagefile on same HDD, from which memory-intensive app is running, but w/ SATAIII (effective read at 70-120MB/s)

I tried both, the first one maybe seemed like a smoother exiperience, but the it worries me that signigicantly slower read/write speeds actually reduces the performance.

whichever disk has a lower IO load

>>61169535
the SATAII one, since i'm running stuff from second one.

Ok, then my gut feel didn't has not deceived me.

I'd go with the third one.

You honestly think one felt more smooth than the other? I'd be damned if that was the case. Just go for some simple benchmarking and find out on the average day.

SSD

No, it will not kill your SSD.
>>
>>61169575
any suggestions on what and how exactly do i benchmark it?
>>
>>61169584
Not an option, since i ran out of power connectors from my PSU (and then, i'd have to buy a bigger case to find a place for another drive)
>>
>>61169599
SSDs are tiny, just glue them anywhere in the case
Get a $0.50 SATA power splitter
>>
>>61169604
okay, i'll keep that in mind.

Meanwhile, i'd like to find the best option out of two proposed
>>
>>61169599
>>61169604
Anon above me is right. SSDs can be put just about fucking anywhere, i'd say it's the easiest thing to find space for in a desktop built. Mine you can't even see because it's hiding behind one of those HDD bays

fucking hell, this board is zero help, but full of memes, too

>Get RAM
>turn off page file
best solution
>>
>>61169977
would be if couple of old apps wouldn't crassh w/o pagefile
>>
>>61170419
I call bullshit, name them.
Since W7 I have pagefile turned off.
Applications dont see page file, they allocate and free memory and they dont care where is it.
>>
>>61169977
ramlets, when will they learn?
>>
>>61170726
easy:
Juiced
STALKER series

First one won't even start, unless it detects virtual ram on it
>>
>>61172228
Virtual RAM can easily exist without page file. I also had pagefile disabled for years, no issues.
>>
>>61172445
wait what? Virtual RAM is pagefile
>>
>>61172479
No.
Virtual RAM is a mapping of pages of memory from process's address space into physical memory.
>>
>>61172500
i don't understand you at all.
what i meant is "Juiced" won't run without pagefile
>>
>>61172515
I hate to break it to you....but you are an idiot.
>>
>>61172622
fuck off, nerd

>a mapping of pages of memory from process's address space into physical memory
So one could say it is a file of pages?
>>
>>61172918
No. The page file is used to dump pages that are presumably not being used from disk to memory, to free up physical memory for other processes, if you dont have enough physical memory. Virtual memory is not a file, it's a page-to-page mapping in memory.

>turn off page file
Another retarded gaymer at /g/
>>
>>61172985
Do elaborate why you think turning page file off is a bad idea.
