A pagefile is on a hard drive.
The best would be to have the page file on the first partition on the second drive.
And if you have more than two drives you should have a pagefile on the first partition on all but the main drive.
It wont give any performance gain unless configured improperly.
It only causes instablity if you have too little but need it. I currently have mine set to 150mb.
Because idleing thats what my system uses.
So all of the stuff that should go it does. But all my game data stays in ram

Thats not 100% true.
I run mine at 150mb.
And every app/game runs fine.
