SSD (samsung 850pro 256GB)
I recently installed a new SSD to my PC and installed a new OS, the SSD software set my page file to 200-1024MB and i noticed that while trying to build a demo map my memory and pagefile maxed out and the build crashed. This leads me to two options, either make the PF max bigger on the SSD even though samsung set the size to a max of 1GB or make a second PF on my HDD in the few cases where something might actually need the extra space.
Im not fond of having my SSD beaten to death with writes if im building stuff that goes over the 16GB of ram i have on a normal basis and it seems like having a larger pagefile on the HDD would be best in this case, however im unsure if its possible to tell windows(8.1) to make use of the SSD PF before touching the HDD PF, while looking for info ive seen it mentioned that it uses both evenly which would probably not give a good desired effect…
Any help would be appreciated. What do you guys do for your PF and how much memory do you have? any good software you guys use to monitor PF usage?
