if you have up to 1GB of RAM usually you should use RAM*2 value for swap
- over 1GB the same amount of swap space is enough. I don't agree with
the idea of having only 10G for / - the nice example is when you use
IMAP and mbox for users - the mails are stored in /var/spool (and a lot
of other things) which can be really hudge. it really depends on what
you are going to use box for
many users just don't use their /homes but receive a hudge amount of mail.
we solved this the other way around - we started to use Maildir :)
RAID0 may be your friend.

I know what the purpose of each of them is, however given my previous
specifications I am seeking to optimise my memory use.
A differant question, a differant answer:
10G / is probably more than enough
256M or 512M swap
