    I just added memory to my computer
    It is xp pro sp3 dual core
    it had 1gig and I added 2 gig making it 3gig
    I upped the virtual memory to 4605
    max 9210
    4605 was the recommended by xp
    i doubled it for the max
    the maximum i am not sure of if it is correct so i am asking any of you here
    what you think
    I looked all over on the net and all agree on the minimum but I cannot find
    a thing about what to set the maximum

    also should I have it checked To have Windows choose the best paging file
    size, by clicking System managed size? and if yes does this bypass the size
    I put in and determine its own size for both mim and max?

    Robin,

    I haven't looked at this on my XP machine in a long time. I discovered that
    when I went in there that I had it personally set to "custom" and the
    difference that I had it set to was - high was double of the low. I don't
    remember when I did this but my computer only has 2GB and it works just
    fine. Since you brought this up I decided to set it to "System managed size"
    and I don't see anything different with performance or functionality.

    I did write down what they were and maybe something will come up to have me
    change back to custom but for now I will let the system handle it.

    that is what I did I doubled the high of low
    all my machines are set this way but they have a gig. this was the first
    time I put 3gigs on and was wondering if what I did for the "high" was ok
    then on the internet I read that you can set it to system managed size and I
    was wondering if it takes the custom levels or puts its own values on

    funny though my other machine which I bought with 3gigs in it, has it set at
    2046 and the high 4092. It actually came this way but it is a dual 2 core
    so I am wondering since it is a dual 2 core if that makes a difference.

    If it is better to set it at System manage size- then that is the way I
    would go but I would like to hear from others especially Bill what he thinks
    it should be set at

    thanks

    ok I just set both of them to System managed size- and am going to see if
    there is any differences in performance. I have no clue why the new
    computer which had 3gigs was set so low to begin with. It's amounts are more
    for 2gigs not 3gigs
    So far I do not see any but time will tell
    I can always set it back to custom if needed
    I read around the link that engle put and it seems that most have it set to
    system managed size so I will go that route and see how it does

    Like I stated I did customize at one point for some reason and I don't know
    why I did it. My computer is only 2GB and was set as you stated below as
    2046 and high 4092 and it is just a P4 3.40 processor.

    Today with the drive capacities and the amount of memory we run I don't
    think that we have to manually do it I think that "system managed" should
    work just fine as an average user.

    Windows will only use as much RAM as it needs, even if you had a Terabyte of RAM Windows would
    not even "see" it. Fussing with VM settings gets you into the fore of overclocking, etc.

    Add the new RAM sticks, hope for the best.
