Generally speaking, you don't want to use the pagefile. So, you turn it off, set it to the minimum, or put it on a separate drive.

Having enough RAM prevents this from happening, but you need you to have some RAM free at all times to avoid using the HDD space.

This is why 8GB is recommended now, you should usually have 2GB free at all time unless you know that you use more RAM....

RAM is cheap, anyway, but 8GB is fine for now. | |

Free tip: when people suggest 16gb of RAM, ignore their advice on everything.

you know little about computers

I'm not lying when I say Arma 2 maxes out my memory resources

The only way around that is a larger page file or more RAM

And RAM? RAM is a lot, lot faster than any HDD.
