Ready Boost

Specs: Windows Vista Ultimate 64Bit, AMD64 3800+ / 768DDR

I have a 64bit system i bought quite a while ago now, which has been running XP Pro. I've been out and bought Vista and wanted to load that onto my PC and so did. The memory in my system is less than 1GB so you can imagine how slow it is!!

Anyway, like an idiot i went out and bought 4GB of DDR2 SDRAM which of course was wrong because my motherboard only takes DDR1!! (School boy error) Anyway, rather than having to find and buy an expensive 4GB of DDR1, or upgrading the motherboard (and therefore CPU) i thought i would ask if ready boost would solve the problem if i added an 8GB flash drive? I really haven't got the money to be messing around with upgrades and stuff at the minute so this seems the easiest (perhaps laziest) and most cost effective solution. I just don't know how good ready boost memory it slow, unstable, reliable....will it do the job?

What are your opinions?

DDR1 in a 64 bit. It must be old.

Should have waited for windows 7.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
