basically the bios on the video card and motherboard is copied into the main memory and executed from there....it is meant to be faster....

as to what hoolio said, its meant to be faster, but if your system writes to that part of memory then it will screw your system and you will need to reboot.

i believe the default setting is disabled.
my system is fine and super fast with it disabled.
