While my computer was chewing on a giant mesh I was trying to find a way of improving virtual memory performance. I made the comment to someone that I sure wish I could use my some of my video ram for a very fast swap file. Then it occurred to me that someone may have had the same idea and implemented it. It turns out some one has and here is a guide on how to do it.

Since people here deal with large memory intensive tasks I thought I would post it here to help others.

You also have a reason to get gaming cards for your cluster nodes now. ;-)
