Default Fast Writes & SBA - What are these things?

So, im having a loverly time installing my new asus v9980 (fx 5950 Ultra)

I've got about 2300 FPS on glxgears but I notice that i do not have Fast Write or SBA enabled. Should I have?

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model:           Unknown
IRQ:             19
Video BIOS:
Card Type:       AGP

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card
Fast Writes:     Supported
SBA:             Supported
AGP Rates:       8x 4x
Registers:       0x1f000e1b:0x1f004102

cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status:          Enabled
Driver:          NVIDIA
AGP Rate:        8x
Fast Writes:     Disabled
SBA:             Disabled
Can anyone help me get on the right track please?

Many thx
