Should I enable Hardware Acceleration?

Hardware Acceleration (in options) controls the performance of several features in Revit 2011 including:
  • realistic materials in realistic view
  • ambient occlusion
  • performance of mechanical views
  • performance of underlay views
  • performance of overall project
To find out if your graphics card supports hardware acceleration, Autodesk has now published a Supported Graphics Hardware List for Revit 2011.

I do not really see much of a difference in enabling that feature. I guess once your machine is slow that would not help you at all.
