AGP support

I was looking into /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and saw this :


" ### AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) GART support ###
# This module takes care of programming the GART (part of your motherboard's
# chipset that handles gathering data from memory and passing it to the
# card) and enables faster AGP transfers. The AGP GART module is required
# to use AGP features of your 3D rendering video card. You'll need this to
# use XFree86's direct rendering support, for example.
#/sbin/modprobe agpgart "

would an AGP video card (diamond stealth SIII 540) be in any way optmized if you enable:

#/sbin/modprobe agpgart ?
