You can skip the alignment if you are using Vista/7.

Actually that alignment is slightly different than the default 7/Vista partitioning. Gives you a little extra performance.

I have never found it so

And I have played around with it quite a bit back when it became the craze. I've tried 64k, 128k, and default. All results were so similar and increase in performance was negligible.

ATTO is poor benchmark. The only benchmarks I use are iometer and CDM.
