My thoughts pretty much.

I love the superfetch service. I noticed a huge boost in application startup time when I made the switch to Vista x64 from XP x64.

I tried disabling the page file with 4 GB of RAM... bad idea. With 8 GB you whould be fine.
Superfetch on, virtual memory on, page file on is how i run, and about 27% (IIRC) of my RAM (4 GB, need to update sig) is chewed up by the OS.

I have to admit i like vista now, once you tweak things right, it starts to run swimmingly (ironically just like XP when it was released).

^^

Ram just sitting there doesn't do jack *&%# for your system. Might as well not even be there.

At the moment, I primarily play World of Warcraft - which runs very smoothly considering that it is on a wireless network and I don't exactly have a top-of-the-line gaming rig.
I played wow smoothly with a 1.6ghz single core processor and a radeon xpress 200 (little pink box) graphics card. Not a very demanding game.

Its quite simple really, systems use more ram under load then at idle, so while filling up your ram will cause applications to start 2-3 seconds faster, after that it throws all performance out of the window, because the system has to free up the ram usage, which takes up resources. Not mention that with less room available the speed will take a hit. HDDs work the same way, if there isn't enough continuous free space available the OS has to move the data around to make room, which a MASSIVE performance hit. Any time you get stuttering in a game you can be sure its your operating system freeing up memory and/or accessing the page file.

I take it you're the kind of person that passes people going 80km/h downtown just to be stopped at a red light and have them catch up, because you think its so much faster.
