Yes, USB Drive Can Work As RAM For Laptop, Will It Work?

    didn't work at all, move the page file to a pen drive is not ram, damn it.
    thats just use an external memory drive to store the virtual memory
    i tested it, with 1gb of ram, the speed is still crap, i think the HDD can read quicker than the pendrive.

    The HDD can read/write faster than flash drives. The problem is that having a pagefile on the HDD takes away from the total read/writes the HDD can do at once - especially on an older system where the pagefile is heavily used.
    So, let's say you open an intensive program. And then try to load a few files in it... since the program is so intensive, and pagefile takes priority... those files will take forever to open, since the HDD keeps being used for PF instead. Using a USB removes that issue.

    Interesting, but seriously it's better to buy more ram than to do this because USB is not as fast as actual ram.

    You're correct. It's not. However, it does help *some*.
    There's a reason that Readyboost was put into Windows Vista/7.

    this will destroy the flash drive so don't use that big of one.

    It will wear down the flash drive.
    *all* flash memory has a limited number of read/writes.
