Ways to solve lack of memory on my PC

I currently have 4gb RAM on my PC. Although I have a 32 bit OS, it can see 3.3gb. I now have VMs and this can cause performance issues as there is competition for resources.

"It is expected and well-known that you will not see 4GB of RAM in a 32-bit OS.

I can't speak to the efficacy of using a USB key as ""memory"", but you're right to suspect that it's throughput is nowhere near that of actual RAM.

How many VMs are you running? How much RAM are they configured to run with? Can you reconfigure them to use less RAM each, leaving more for your host OS?"
