I have recently purchased a new asus motherboard which I havent installed yet.In the manual I have noticed an option in the bios to select (AHCI) for the sata hdd.It states it increases storage performance & workloads,Is this worth selecting before installing windows,& can any problems occur,Or should I stick with the standard sata setting.I have winxp home edition and a wd 36gig raptor sata hdd and 3.4ghz 551 x64 p4 cpu.I mainly play games & do photo work,Thanks for any replys....

I don't believe it'll benefit the drive you have.....AHCI is meant for the latest SATAII \ NCQ HD's.
Anyone else on this???
