I wanted to share my experience with Imdisk as I did not see a post about it. I have 32gb of memory in my alienware m17x and I partition 16gb of said memory to be set as a gaming drive. This has dramatically reduced lag in almost all the games that I play. I am happy to help anyone (with enough memory) setup a drive and have it autostart (task scheduler) with windows. Please PM me with any questions. Also, does anyone else here run a ramdisk and what are your thoughts?

I also use IMDisk for certain games where rapid loading of textures helps immensely. I have 16GB of RAM (I only have two slots). So I allocate half of it to a RAM disk when needed. Mainly when I play Skyrim. I have all of the (high-res) textures and a few miscellaneous other things loaded to my ramdisk. I have a junction link setup for the related files (the 'textures' folder references the R:\textures essentially).

And yes, it helps immensely. Only really helps with games that need to load a bunch of stuff at once.
