Aside from the fact you've got far too little virtual memory avavilable for the amount of physical memory installed, the general answer is no. Set the swapfile to "System Managed", that'll make it a lot bigger so that on its own should help performance a bit.

The issue with Virtual Memory is, its slow. Hard drives are and always have been slow. The root of your issue is more likely caused by a limitation somewhere else, such as a substandard graphics card or games that are poorly coded.
