    "Does running without a pagefile improve performance?
    Based on my observations there is no performance benefit to running without a pagefile."

    I have always used static pagefiles, you can really see an improvement in performance. Since I use Linux most of the time I always use the double amount as my physical RAM is, in my case 16gb, because I have 8gb of RAM (this is an old habit).

    This is FAR more than needed, I don't even have to use a pagefile because I have 8gb built-in already.
    But, I have more than enough diskspace so I can miss it.

    In your case I would set a static pagefile for your use on 4gb, if you have a second harddisk I would place it there (this has no use if it's only a partition instead of a physical hdd). Really, you don't need more than a pagefile of 4gb with 8 gb RAM.
