How necessary is a linux swap partition having 8gb of RAM?84

Its a lot necessary. Sometimes, your ram gets full even when you keep scrolling facebook watching videos, apparently, all the stuffs you have scrolled are kept in the ram consuming 3-4 gb, also if you have multiple tabs running , in no time , ram will be full, if there's no swap, system will just hang and you have to forcefully shutdown the system using power button. But if you have swap enabled, as soon as your ram gets fully consumed , you will notice the system becomes sluggish since a lot of ram pages are being transferred to swap and you can close some tabs to free the ram. The advantage being instead of having to turn off your computer, you get a chance of closing some apps and use the system normally.
