It's highly recommended to have swap, unless you have lots of (I mean lots of) RAM.
Swap is needed when your applications need more memory than you have RAM. Then parts of what is in RAM are written to swap.

Also, if you want to do such things like suspend-to-disk (e.g. with a notebook), then you also need swap (which then must be at least the size of your RAM).
