Just a bit of advice for those who need high end machines. If you want to have 4GB of ram and say a pagefile of 12GB, you will need to get an operating system and processor capable of 64-bit processing. For example, Windows Server 2003 64-bit edition and Windows XP Professional 64-bit edition both allow pagefile sizes to be larger than 4GB. My computer is using an AMD 64-bit processor as well.
