You should make it a little bigger.
The initial size should be at least 1.5 times bigger than the amount of physical RAM. Do NOT make the Pagefile smaller than the amount of AID-5 volume. Paging files do not need fault-tolerance, anphysical RAM you've got putting a paging file on a fault-tolerant drive, such as a mirrored volume (installed on your system.
Make its initial size as big as the maximum size. This will avoid writing large files to the HD, which cause a lot of disk activity that will cause performance degradation. Also, since the Pagefile only grows in increments, you will probably cause Pagefile fragmentation, adding more overhead
