    Default Readyboost SD cards...

    I'm really wanting to start running readyboost with my laptop and don't want to carry it around with a USB sticking out. I know USB would really be the better option but not possible here really. So what would be the best SD card to use for readyboost? Or is readyboost really even worth it?

    In my opinion, readyboost is not worth it. What laptop do you currently own? Upgrading to 2GB or 4GB of RAM would be around the same price as a flash drive and you'll see a noticeable improvement from 1GB or less RAM.

    Ready Boost wan't make a HUGE difference in speeds, but (since I know your laptop) it should definitely be more responsive.

    As far as the best one that you could get, I would suggest the Sandisk Extreme III (comes in 4, 8, and 16 GB variants):
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820171376

    This SD card has up to 30MB/ sec read/write times, and will be fast enough to give a "boost" to your system.

    My Laptop has 3gb of ddr2 and is running a 2.1ghz core 2 duo processor. and to my knowledge my os won't recognize any higher amount of memory unless I make the jump to 64 bit. I'm really not sure if the $48.99 is worth how much of an increase I'd actually get... I kinda doubt it
