Question about Dell Dimension E520 PC Desktop
Virtual memory is actually part of a computer's physical memory that
comes in the form of memory chips or RAMs. So what right? Well, it is a
necessary evil and in order for your computer to run numerous programs
simultaneously (at the same time), it looks for areas of RAM (Random
Access Memory) that is not currently being used and it copies files
over to what is called page files. This is simply a process that allows
RAM to free up space and subsequently load new or additional
applications. This process is technically called thrashing and the
result of it can cause the computer to react somewhat slower in its
functions. However, when the computer hard drive (virtual memory) which
is slower than the installed memory chips wants to correct itself, it
has to constantly swap between the RAM and the hard disk drive.
What Causes These Windows Out of Virtual Memory Error Messages?
Realize that although Windows automatically sets both minimum (the amount of RAM installed on your PC + 300 MB) and maximum (3 times the amount of installed RAM) to its page file sizes if you do get that virtual memory error message - then you can do the following steps to increase these minimum and maximum page file sizes;
Re-Setting Windows 2000 virtual page file sizes
Also a bit more ram perhaps another gig or two? and maybe a 512mb graphics cards would be good for gaming.
perhaps a better power supply too as E520 was not really designed for gaming.
