You can enable fast writes on certain radeons, but it is not reckoned to give mush of a perfromance boost (supposed to seed up some GPU functions like buffering textures ) and can lead to instability, not just with ATI cards, it also is not compatible with certain motherboard chipsets.

I would suggest if you want to try it run 3dmark with it off and then with it on and see what the difference is.

Go to the smartgart box on your advanced display properties - it should show you there if its enabled or not.
