    Is the stupid swap file man. I have 16GB, and Windows still needs this crap, and (some) games wont run if is disabled. I had the same issue with stuttering, then I decide to create a virtual drive of 2GB of RAM, put the swap file there and guess what? EVERYTHING is blazing fast, INCLUDING load times, no stuttering, everything is incredibly fast.
    So try this. Even if the guys will say is stupid, and Windows doesn't work like that, trust me. Talking 100% from experience ;)

    I find setting the page file settings to range from 512 to 1024MB is enough when you have a large amount of system memory. Still, I usually set the page file to something that isn't my SSD as the page file performs a lot of unnecessary writes on the SSD.

    sure, if you are not paging/swapping then your storage media has nothing to do with game performance. however, you will see a drop in frame rate in game if you are paging/swapping as the OS offloads data to the HDD for access later.
