Window's Vista's Plug 'n Play USB RAM - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I dont really see a point to this unless you have a really crappy computer.

I doubt there will be a huge increase in speeds becuase usb 2.0 is what... 480mb/s? thats how many times slower than ram?

But then again... I rather use a 480mb/s thumb drive to put my pagefile onto ratehr than have it use the hdd page file.

But think of it!

An average mobo can have up to 6 usb ports each able to accept a 7 port usb hub thats 42 usb slots. Put even a 1gb usb flash drive in each that an extra 42gb of ram!

so figure 22.95 per stick http://www.supermediastore.com/mr-fl...ash-drive.html
and 22.99 per USB hub http://www.usb-ware.com/hub-7-port-hu2772.htm

makes the TCO of 1 gb of ram $26.23

this conffguration would give us the ablity to add 42 gb of ram to any average system for $1101.84

so its actually cheeper and you can really excede your mobo limits.

This possibly could give us the ability to excede one TB of ram.
