more or less. Since the pagefile would be sitting on the iRAM it'll effectively be like adding another 4GB of RAM to the system. Programs and such won't be able to address it, they'll still be limited to 3.8GB, but if the lack of RAM makes your system rely on the pagefile, access will be like 1000x faster. Don't expect miracles though, pagefile access is still pretty fast on modern SATA disks. It was more of an issue with the old PATA drives due to lack of NQC and other SATA enhancements.
Also, you don't need to stick with XP 32 on the Conroe865PE, W7 64bit works beautifully.
