Dave does low CAS latency really matter?
RAM manufacturers make it sound like CAS 2.0 is a huge improvement over CAS 3.0.
My VAIO desktop PCV RZ 46G came with one gigabyte of memory which suits my system well for some editing software. However, when it comes to using Photoshop CS, the hard disk gets overworked, and has left me having to wait considerably.
As a busy photographer, I need to spend as little time as possible editing each image in order to speed up the workflow. My key to streamline work is dependent upon this application with its automated batch-processing of RAW files. Consequently, the information you provided about CAS latency has given me an advantage when I made my purchase.
As a result, I saved $184.00, plus the speed of batch-processing is remarkable! This has been something very important to me and I can't thank you enough.
I have been unable to reproduce your results on my system and I only have one gig of RAM.
I had DOOM3, Half-Life 2, Paint Shop Pro (editing my own .TIFF image btw) Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, Zone Alarm, Steam, MS AntiSpyware, Norton Internet Securities, and Norton Antivirus (to to mention all of thier processes) all running at the same time. My page file was only at 468 MB. Very strange indeed. Let's see a screenshot with what you stated, but this time with us able to see the current processes and apps running, not merely having you tell us about them.

What makes you think that you're going reproduce daveyd's pagefile with only one gig of memory?
Are you're having difficulty reading his post? Why don't you have Photoshop running?
It's BEST to have 1 gig of extremely high qaulity RAM (think crucial ballistix, Muskin V-2, OCz platinum, G-Skill, HyperX) then 2 gig of moderate RAM.
Thinking in this mindset, where do you end up at?
No it's not. I just upgraded my ram to two gigabytes. However, you're making a fool out of yourself. The "quality" of your replies have little significance if you can't give him the numbers.
You tell techno this:
And, when you need more, buy another gig of the high performance RAM. So instead of having two gigs of crap, you'll have two gigs of stuff that is much faster.
and then you come back to say this?
His crucial is "value" RAM, but it has great performance, it's quality RAM.
make up your mind, you're confusing everyone.
With a name like instigatorX, you must be anticipating the consequences.
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance. I find that nothing in the world is more dangerous than conscientious stupidity.
Is this what you're trying to reproduce?
Let's see if we can provide some benchmarks with one gig vs. two
