Sure thing!

Any time that you can avoid a hit to disk, you should avoid using disk. In the RDBMS world, we put caches in front of SQL Server, even though SQL Server will devour all RAM in the known universe if you let it. Likewise, why read from potentially slow disks when you can try to hit cache first?
