You shouldn't disable the pagefile.
Everything in the kernel expects it to exist and has been built around that assumption. so if you remove it you will actually get worse performance. Even if your RAM is more than enough.
You can probably make it a lot smaller though.

If you go to the control panel -> System -> advanced system settings -> Select the advanced tab -> Performance settings -> Advanced tab -> click Virtual memory - change, you'll get a recommended size that will quite probably work just fine for you.
