Readyboost is a cache facility really for the slower hdd. Disabled for SSDs as no benefit is found. I think you would be better off with more onboard ram but depends what you use your PC for. Have a read here.

Have a look here there is some very interesting info. You can use multiple Flash drives each up to 4Gb http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReadyBoost ps get English lessons.
