I haven't used Virtual memory,aka pagefile or swap file, for years. It was needed when RAM was 4 MB (megabyte not gigabyte) but isn't needed anymore with computers having 4 to 16 GB of very fast RAM.

some amazingly angry people on the internet on this subject, along with wildly differing conclusions between none and 1x memory for large memory footprints (and even more for lower ones)  I've gone without, but the hedge bet is leaving a tiny 1-4G one in case a rare write is attempted.
