A mere sample would include: Byzantines, Persians, Arabs, Turks, Circassians, Kurds, Abbassids (Iraqis), Egyptians, Kharezmians (Genghis Khan), Mamluks, Mongols, Latins (Crusaders), Ottomans, French and English.

It is not and never was Palestinian land.

8 GB memory + disabling the paging file will help a lot.

My dad's got 16 GB of memory on his server board that he uses for Photoshop and video editing. Turning off the paging file on it made it much much more responsive.

Disabling the paging file off WILL help performance in some highly demanding applications. However, you're also going to run into quite a few broken applications due to this. Nearly every application is designed to use a paging file, Windows OS programs included. Superbly coded programs will behave correctly when the paging file is disabled and there is an adequate amount of memory available. However, there are quite a few that will just crap out, no matter how much memory you have.

I use 8 gigs of RAM. I noticed a difference from the 4 gigs, but I think it has more to do with the speed jump (1066 vs. 800) then actually being larger.
