    To WMD members playing the game. Do you know whether devs recommend having the page file (virtual memory) enabled or not?. I have 16gb and have always disabled. Could this cause some trouble with pc2 somewhat? Windows 7 64bit here.

    AFAIK in general it's not a good idea to have the page file disabled. I don't think pC2 in particular has a different dependency on it than other software, but it being a big, resource-hungry game it may cause Windows to run into serious problems faster.

    I never have the page file disabled and use a fixed size (Min/Max the same) at 1.5 times my physical memory, so wouldn't really know if it would effect pCARS1 or 2.
    It's just the way I have always done it, probably overkill but it works.

    The only trouble cause by the absence of virtual memory I've ever encountered has been only with programs that are somewhat dependent on it such as the infamous autocad, and some older versions of Photoshop.

    In gaming terms, the only game I've seen for now causing trouble due to no page file was starcraft 2 heart of the swarm, although that was many years ago and got sorted already as well.

    The point of I not using the page file cache is because I have 16gb of physical, and having to run a 16gb+ virtual memory block on the hard drive feels like quite a lot fo wasted space. I've always felt W7 as a pretty stable OS once completely updated, and of course tweaked in some CPU (core parking = always disable that crap) and memory areas, as well as removing many services and some other stuff to make it lighter. The system also seems faster without page file, always.

    I'd recommend to alt-tab to desktop always when a game is running to set its priority just one click above normal (never very high or real time beware here), rendering those windows fail-related issues almost non-existent, specially if you are on a powerful cpu.

    Still, It would be interesting to know from devs if they have programmed anything in the game to be dependent on page file cache. Only that, as a simple yes or no may spare many folks quite a headache in the future if the game begins having any sort of weird crashes

    I'm now a PC gamer (yay!) after getting a good local deal on a 980Ti rig. I'm getting 60fps at 1.5k with a combo of high/ultra settings in a thunderstorm at night with 20 opponents, so should be OK for pCARS 2. I hope?

    No need to use any ultra settings as you will never see the difference, it's only really needed for good screenshots.

    SMS is targeting for the performance to be similar to PC1. Obviously, with all the new stuff it will be a little more taxing, but they've also make a lot of improvements in the engine so it will come close to balancing out.
