It is, however, better to not set the initial and max sizes at different sizes, because this does cause re-sizing and fragmentation which could affect performance.
I seriously doubt that... when working with data-intensive applications, such as Adobe Premiere, there is a big difference when setting the virtual memory to 2,5xinternal.
I didn't test this yet on my NForce2 system, but it sure did so in 2k, with 768MB of PC133 and Adobe premiere 6.5.
But let's go ontopic again, this discussion is not solving hbboks' problem.
