Question regarding Readyboost and Expresscche

Hi folks. I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong section.

Yesterday I purchased a Samsung Series 5 touchscreen laptop (this model).

The laptop features a 24GB flash memory used a ExpressCache. I also purchased a 32GB extra high speed class 10 SD card. I bought it with intentions to use the SD card strictly for Windows Readyboost, as I never use the SD card reader for anything else.

My question is, can I use ReadyBoost in addition to the ExpressCache that the laptop is already configured with? Any conflicts? Or would it just be completely redundant?

Please let me know if I would benefit at all by doing this, and keep in mind I don't use the SD reader for anything else and I have the card already, so if there are no conflicts and I could potentially ever benefit from it, I'd like to use. Let me also clarify that I am aware of what ReadyBoost is, and I do use my computer in ways that I would normally benefit from it. That is not my question. My only question is can it be used in conjunction with ExpressCache.

I appreciate any advice or insight!

readyboost was never a good idea and I would never recommend using it. It was.meant as a (bad) solution for people who didn't have enough ram in vista. Ram is now cheaper than that card you just bought and far far faster
