Disk Geometry

SysAdminII
I have been doing some reading on Disk Geometry and how aligning your disk can enahnce performance 20-30%. Most of the articles tell you to contact your hardware vendor before performing this task but most of the articles I see also relate to Exchange Servers. My question concerns SQL 2000 and SQL 2005. I was curious what kind of performance increase would occur if you performed the Diskpart or Diskpar on a Windows 2003 Server with SQL 2000 or 2005 and what the benefit might be, if there is any. I know we have a ton of I/O's, being that we capture real time data, so I was curious if it might be beneficial to perform the dispart on any new boxes that I create? Any ideas or comments would be apprecitated.
