USB 2.0 thumb drive for windows pagefile?


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I am gaming on an Inspiron 8200 with a quadro4 700 go gl.

If I dont try and max settings, I can generally get pretty decent FPS in WoW and other games.

I have noticed however that my hard drive is constantly going (swapping), and Im thinking I might have a bottleneck there...

My question:

Has anyone ever tried using a USB 2.0 flash drive (in my case it will be a firewire one) for their windows page file?

The transfer rates are more than 5x faster than the internal ATA66 that my hard drive uses...

Please post any thoughts or experiences you might have!
