While it make a difference pre-XP today you can set it, test it and unless you did something very wrong you won't be able to see any speed gain or loss here.

Look to other areas if you want to optimize. This isn't one of those areas.

There should be an error message if that's bad but there is no speed gain here and FYI has been discussed for a very long time. Be aware this is a well worn area of discussion. If you need more speed or looking for gains, this ain't it.
