With plenty of RAM, you could consider setting up a RAM Disk.

I have an everyday computer with 32Gb RAM, and I'm thinking a RAM Disk might be interesting.

What exactly would you use the RAM disk for? I've wondered about that myself, but found that any well designed program that uses large amounts of memory will be much better at using actual RAM than using a swap file on a RAM disk so no point in stealing RAM to make a RAM disk.

Right. A RAM disk would be slower than accessing RAM directly due to the overhead involved in the swap process.
