Ya, go with NTFS. It's the best.

It doesn't matter. ReadyBoost creates just one big file (ReadyBoost.sfcache), so NTFS is useless, in fact, it takes more space, so FAT32 would be recommended.

That's right. Also if for some reason you are using a 256mb stick, you'll have to use FAT/FAT32. NTFS doesn't leave enough space.

It's a know fact that for cache Fat32 is faster than NTFS....think your access benchies are off.
