Are page files bad for SSD?
No, your paging file is rarely used if ever used with the 8GB of memory that you have, and when used even on an SSD it is far slower than system memory. Windows automatically sets the amount and the more memory you have the more it sets as virtual memory. So in other words the less you need it the more it gives you.
