There's no substitute for system ram. If you need more ram, I would suggest you install it in your machine. Go to www.crucial.com and use the online scanner to get the specs and amount.

A flash drive is often referred to as memory but the computer doesn't use it that way. It is much slower than and cannot be directly addressed like RAM. A flash drive is used like a disk drive. There is no substitute for RAM.

One could use usb in Windows 7 very easily to speed up and help ram. In XP is is more difficult. One could make it virtual hard drive or a cache. Problem is that usb not usually that fast. Ram is still better.
