Increasing your VM will not greatly change your system performance if it's set to let windows manage your VM. If you want to manually change these settings to see if you get better results, you can find the VM settings in: Control Panel/System/Advanced/Performance (click settings)/Advanced

Let me know if that helps you out.

what he said, plus note that if you left it at the default settings, Windows increases the virtual memory as needed. It's only when you set a size limit that you would need to worry about virtual memory running out.
