Hi just a silly question.
I know my virtual mem should be 1 and a half times installed RAM. But on a laptop the graphics uses some of the physical mem as shared RAM. Now do i deduct the graphics mem from the total mem then times 1.5 to get a recommended virtual mem. I dont really think it wil make a big difference but it would be interesting to know.
:)
Thanks
