You can read the page fault count per process directly on the Task Manager, by enabling the appropriate column. But let me tell you a secret: "page fault", "swapping" and "RAM shortage" are only vaguely related subjects, and a high page fault count can not only be perfectly fine, but means absolutely nothing on its own.

About the best RAM for your system... the more, the better. There really is no such thing as too much RAM.

Agreed, RAM is insanely cheap at the moment, so the more the better. – tombull89 Feb 28 '12 at 9:30
