Instancing question

Hi,

Is there anyone who has experience with the instancing support in the SDK?
I would like to know the following:
I would like to display a lot of spheres in OpenGL and I would like to know if I can use the instancing for this?
Is the geometry instanced on the graphics card too? Or is it only instanced in memory?

Or in other words, would this be faster than using a custom object display?

thanks

If it's equally slow I'll give it a go, the instances allow me to have lit opengl polys, so that should at least be an advantage over the custom objects.

Thanks
