USB Readyboost vs Gaming

I have a question has anyone ever used USB Readyboost with 4GB physical ram? I already have a 2nd Physical (Non-OS related) drive that is used for my Pagefile.sys (separate partitioned at 9GB).

I have a USB drive that is 4GB (Formatted with FAT32) was wondering if i anyone has used anything for gaming etc

    With 4GB of ram, ReadyBoost really isn't going to make any difference. In fact, it may actually hurt your overall system performance. ReadyBoost is only designed to be used on systems with smaller (< 2GB) amounts of system RAM.

    And even then it makes SFA difference IMHO.
