    As said by those above........I would not disable the Page File; it will cause no harm to the new solid state drives in any way.....

    Forget that. With your kind of RAM there will never be any paging anyhow.
    Totally agree.

    Also, the new memory compression algorithms keep a lot of pagefile information in memory (in a compressed format) rather than paging to disk anyway, reducing need to page to disk anyway.

    Coupled with 16 GB of RAM as you say, it will hardly page at all.

    Still though, it largely depends on how you use your computer. For example, if you only browse internet and play computer games, you won't page to any serious degree having such a large amount of RAM. Now, if you're a video editor, or a programmer, or utilize special fs filter drivers, you may page heavily with only 16GB or RAM.

    I almost never reach limit of my RAM. I just browse Internet or watch movies or play video games which are stored on my HDD. Sometimes I work in Photoshop & Illustrator, but still I never reach 16GB of RAM. So yeah, after reading comments & articles given by users, I'll leave it managed by system on my SSD.
