Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, 64-bit

I remember looking into it maybe 3 years ago and figuring it would do little for me, but I can't recall the details.

If an HD supports NCQ, is AHCI necessary to take advantage of it??

I have no need for RAID or hot swapping.

I completely forgot about it when I did my recent Win 7 install, so I still am without.

Any insight into the real-world difference for typical users, non-RAID?

Speed related? Security related? Minor? Very minor? Moderate?
