Ring Buffer verse Capture Buffer?

What is the Ring Buffer? (tools/options/workspace page)
What is the Capture Buffer? (capture options/general page)
How are they related to each other and a data capture?
What are the recommended setting?

I think I was told leave the Ring Buffer at its default 4096,
and the capture buffer should not exceed 500 Meg.

I am trying to optimise the capture of high speed (1 Gig traffic), capturing 100% of data. I would like to capture for as long as I can (sometimes I get buffer usage overflows).

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
