    Do the same rules that applied to Win 9X/Me Apply to XP?.

    Due to some unsual circumstances, I now have 768 MB in my system. By managing the virtual memory setting myself, will I see a appreciably increase in performance?. As it stands, with windows doing the management, I am really not seeing the difference from my old 256 MB limit..

    What I am really wondering is if I should go ahead and return this extra 512 stick that's in my machine. What do y'all think?

    Michael.

    Don't follow whatever guidelines applied to Win9x/Me. Windows XP is based on Windows NT/2000.
