I also run multiple vm's for study purposes nothing major.
So it's satteld I think I'll get rid of the pagefile for good..

btw I ran catzilla benchmark with and without pagefile and I got a higher score without pagefile about 1000 points higher.

Benchmarks to me mean very little. If it's already performing optimally, any further "improved scores" will look the same to me regardless of the delta on the difference.

Usually higher score means more fps, and even if it's a 1-3 fps improvement it's still very significant to a gamer..

Pagefiles are also useful for games that require textures etc to be stored in a pagefile if they exceed the 4GB usage.

They are also used by windows to store libraries etc.

These days you have more chance of being safe without a pagefile than it would have been a few years ago.

But don't forget that pagefiles are allocated hard disk space so not as fast as RAM.

I highly doubt you're going to notice a difference beyond 60 FPS which is an extremely fluid motion. If the minimum FPS recorded during a test is already 60 then there's no need to push out additional performance in my eyes.

I agree it will be hard to notice in the midrange games but in dx11 games on ultra settings most of the chances you will notice it, besides it's always gdk you have extra fps
