    Any possible way to do this without starting over? Programs, etc? I only have 2GB of my 8GB and a program i use on windows shows 50% usage during gameplay, sometimes high 20's but that's the lowest.

    I thought I couldnt devote more than 8GB to my Windows partition? it'll stil use all 8GB on OSX correct? 8gb is 8gb on either platform - what would you guys do?

    It's a low fps game, doesnt require much at all...only use windoes for browsing, and playing this game via Steam.

    It sounds like you are using 32 bit Windows. If you use 64 bit, all installed RAM will be available to Windows.

    You can partition as much disk space to windows as you want. For Win 7, I would set 50GB, as a minimum.
