I'm probably going to get a USB drive soon just to run Eboostr on, and I was wondering what the "speed limit" was. I know after a certain amount of memory it doesn't make a difference on speed.

I'm guessing 4 gigs, but can I get some conformations or suggestions?
Don't mind me, I'm just lurking.

Im guessing ur talking about speedbost, and speedbost will only run at about the speed of standard ddr memory. if your using DDr2 all your gonna do is bottleneck your system. to be honest, when I used readyboost in my system to bring my system memory from 2 gig to 4 gig, (2 gig USB drive) I really didnt notice much of a difference.
