For a 4GB memory stick it won't matter--all exfat does in relation to regular fat is change the absolute size of files that can be stored on an exfat to beyond the 4GB limit of regular fat. Since you have a 4GB stick, you wouldn't be storing a file larger than 4GB anyway, so it doesn't matter.

If you're going to be using the mem stick on other pre windows XP systems, or on a Mac (or other non-windows 7/Vista hardware), then you'd be better off with fat--otherwise it won't have any effect on performance with respect to readyboost.

thanks for the info, its just purely for readyboost, it does seem to help a little even with 4gb of ram, seems to help with a few stutters in games, guess its the much shorter access time, would getting a usb 3.0 flash drive yield a performance increase?

If you have a USB 3.0 header on your motherboard or somewhere on the PC, yes
