Should agp fast write be enable or disabled in the mother board settings?
Does it have any performance significance?

Enabled. Some cards will get a 50 FPS boost others just 5 but it will still give a performance boost.

It depends on your video card. Pretty much though, I can't see any harm in enabling it.

Disable it. It has a negligble effect on framerate (50 FPS? Where on earth did that come from?) and it can make your system ustable-especially with Ati cards..

if u think its giving u problems disable it and see if there is any difference, if not turn it back on, i mean Fastwrites help but if the system is unstable turn it off.
