You need to change the paging file because windows will raise it to match the ram amount, and since you now have more ram there is less need for a larger paging file or virtual memory. I have 16gb of ram and I have my paging file set to 0 because of the large amount of ram there is no need for virtual memory.
Virtual memory or paging file is space that Windows takes from the hard drive to use as virtual memory.
