disabling page file

Hi guys i updated my pc last week and my new pc specs are

i5 2500k
10 gb ddr3 1333mhz (4+4+2)
500gb hdd (5 years old. took from old pc)
gtx 660
windows 8.1

i saw many forums in which some says disable and some says not.
i use my pc for games,Photoshop editing,surfing and movies.not to much multitasking at the same time.

so should i disable page file??? will it increase the performance of my old hdd /loading times??
now page file is set to 10gb by default.

  2. Best answer
    Leave it on. At most, reduce the size. But don't turn it off completely. Some applications may choke with no pagefile.
  3. Well as for me , i was having so lag spikes and stutters in the amazing man 2 , spider man web of shadows, dead rising 3 and watch dogs . so i googled and read some where that disabling page file helps and after disabling page file , it was like wow game start playing smooth as butter , lag spikes for web of shadows and spider man almost gone to 0 , and was getting smooth gameplay for dead rising 3 and watch dogs was like 80% better then with page file on , so u should really try it, helps alot in gaming.
