Virtual Memory does play a good part in computer performance. If your computer doesn't have enough RAM for a program, it will NEED virtual memory. If virtual memory is disabled, and the computer runs out of RAM, it will probably lock up. Virtual Memory is a spot on the hard drive where data is temporarily stored when you don't have enough RAM.

To check the temperature on your video card, if it has a sensor, you could probably use Speed Fan. You will see the values of many different sensors on your computer, such as Fan Speeds, Temperatures, and SMART data.
