Speed up your Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is one of the great programs from the Adobe Creative Suite, but probably also one of the "heaviest" programs for your system resources. So everything you can do to speed things up is welcome I guess.
Here is something I've read long time ago and use ever since. Every time I install Photoshop this is the first thing I do.
Go to Adobe Photoshop's Preferences and go to Performance. Make sure there is a reasonable amount of RAM (Memory) that Adobe Photoshop can use. But don't forget that your system also needs memory to work with. Too much for Photoshop will mean less for your system.
Also, change the cache level back to 1.
Optional is the History States. This is the amount of Undo's you can do on your current document. 20 means that Photoshop will remember 20 states of your document. You can lower this, but this means less undo's.
