Because RAM memory is a lot more faster than the hard disk, whenever the computer begins to use the Pagefile to relieve memory pressure, we begin to experience a drastic performance There are a few available options. Windows 2000/XP/2003 also make the Pagefile's initial size 1.5 times the size of the physical memory (RAM) installed. http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1047453 You can only say that right now you're safe because you're only using 192992 K or memory out of 785904 K you have.

The processor itself then translates (‘maps’) the virtual addresses from an instruction into the correct physical equivalents, doing this on the fly as the instruction is executed.

If having another physical hard disk available besides the primary hard-disk and it is just as fast, then one can consider to split the pagefile over both hard-disks. Only experiment in a real situation will establish how big, but a start point might be an initial size equal to half the size of RAM for each user logged in.
