    I concur, also in a few years you'd be wanting to upgrade the SSD to one with a larger capacity. This would likely happen before the SSD deteriorates.

    I think the evo 840 can handle 2 years or more In a pc that it's not running 24/7

    it'll last a long time anyways. Unless you are writing to the drive ALL the time. If the drive is used mainly for the OS then writes are not being done very much. Its mostly being read from, but its writes that shorten the life of an SSD. But it is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be.

    Hi guys, I have an Asus G750JX laptop with 8GB of ram, I just ordered another 8GB , so I will have 16GB soon, now...
    Now currently my system manages the paging file size automatically, recommended = 4587MB and currently allocated=8192MB.
    My OS is installed on a 95GB partition from a 256GB SSD, currently having 40GB free on the OS partition.
    Now the question is when I have 16GB of ram installed soon, will the allocated pagefile size increase to 16GB?
    Should I still let windows manage my pagefile? Or should I set a maximum what WIndows recomments?

    Thanks! :D

    If you dont have problems with windows running out of ram then dont touch it. Win 7 and newer have a better memory manager than Vista and Older

    Well I usually have a lot of tabs open in chrome, which is eating a lot of ram, in between I play a game but keep chrome open, so thats why I ordered more ram.
    I'm running windows 8.1. You mean don't touch the page file settings?

    Don't use freackin'' Chrome. It's a freackin' ad app. Use brains while you use Firefox/no script/ad block plus.

    I'm using chrome with ad block plus, I have firefox and opera too, but don't use them much since they scale too large, tabs/text too large I don't like it.
