I was told by a hacker long time ago you're computer RAM for example you can increase performance on you;recomputer by lowering you're virtual memory settings in System>Advanced>Performance>Settings like say my computer has 1.1 GB I could set my memory to minumum of 2 MB(Initial)-300 MB(Maximum) or a reasonably low setting. The default memory settings is like 1500MB minimum to 3000MB.
I aslo know if it is set too low there will be warning message on you're computer. My question is does this help you're performance, and why does it? Is it good for just regular computer functions or does it also help games as well etc..
Anyways I hope i explained it enough.
