If you increase your system ram to 2gb you won't need much swap at all.  The
main problem is that with 1gb ram you really need a separate video card
because the onboard card is using too many resources.

I use my old 256mb geforce4 ti and that offloads playback processing enough
to let me watch + record two HD streams on my ancient AMD XP 2500+ w/1gb ram
(outputting at 1920x1080 to a HDTV).  I use one drive for system/db/swap and
a second for recordings.
