I'm currenty running 256MB of RAM and are about to put in some more as for editing videos its very slow and the playback is jerky, and eventually when a lot of clips are being played, the program I'm using crashes.
I've heard about virtual memory where the computer assigns some of you hardrive to be used as RAM. What I am wanting to know is is there thing to stop me from setting my virtual memory to say 3 or 4 GB's of my hardrive? If not, how about 10 or 20GB? Wouldn't buying more RAM be pointless when instead you could buy a 40 or 80GB harddrive and set it up so all of it is used for virtual memory.
There is obvousliy a reason why it can't be done or else everyone would be doing it. I would be intreasted to know what it is.
