Sandforce (vertex 3) AHCI or IDE mode?

Hi all.. I recently put together a system equipped with a Vertex 3 SSD, I recently found out that I installed Windows 7 with IDE mode enabled in the BIOS/UEFI. Would ACHI mode bring any noticable difference? Is there any reason why I should keep with the IDE mode and not change it?

Thanks for any info...
