Of course it's your preference, but the learning curve of Seven isn't really difficult. Honestly, it would be better persevering With 7 for a little longer.
At least try a virtual environment like virtual box
first and see how your XP apps go.
It's pretty easy to set up and use. If you do have any issues, there is a whole section of this forum that can help you through it.
my boards driver
dont have a ahci controller for me to download
No, there doesn't appear to be an X64 version.
just planning on bios change to sata or raid and see if i could get xp64 to run, would i notice a dramatic loss in speed if i were to do this?
Setting the bios to RAID would make your drive a non-memebr of the RAID, which is essentially the same as AHCI. You don't want that setting.
There would be a noticeable speed loss - but dramatic? No. At worse it would probably feel like a mechanical HDD.
