Lives for gear
Sure I find with no paging file, windows informs me when it runs out of memory and asks me to close the applications with the most significant memory use (in its opinion). Interesting.

This feedback is informative and I can take my own decisions of what app is priority. Rather then windows attempting to take this decision for me. Empowering.

Yes for a DAW, this should help me run all the important things in memory, and avoid any performance penalties from swapping.

Subjectively, things seem snappier, but it might not be just because I no longer use a paging file.

Guess in these days when RAM is not too expensive, up to a certain point, no need for swapping for Audio apps that need to respond asap.
