Well, answer is hell yeah, this is Possible. So, let's increase your Computer Speed by following the basic steps .

    1. Hello Jimmi,

      Thanks for stopping by. Jimmy yes these all things will become possible with this virtual RAM. But just remember this is not your actual RAM so once you remove your pen drive it will be gone.

      And yes you can play games, run heavy programs etc. Even I'm doing the same thing :)

      Hope this helps !
