Hey just thought id share my Ramdisk experimentation with you all. I used 1GB of my ram as a harddisk using a tool downloadable from a company called Qsoft. I only used the demo version 32bit, but it has potential if you have a mobo with over 8GB ram, I have a ASUS DSBF-DE which can hold upto 32GB of fully buffered ECC ram, however it is not finished and is waiting for some quad cores and the rest of the parts.
Ultimatly id like to make a 10GB ramdisk and try a demanding game on it, to see if there is any increace in perfomance... i guess there will be juding by my benchmarks ive done on the 1GB ddr 2 drive I made.
It has a ludicrus buffered read bandwith of aprox 3.2GB/sec! thats just insanity! eat ur heart out SCSI320, or SATA, even in raid 0, you would struggle to make 160MB/sec!
