You don't need it, unless you rendering sunrise/sunset scene where sun is directly visible. Textured option will make sun's borders appear slightly dimmer, thus increasing realism. AFAIK, it is advisable to keep it off in regular scenes, as it slightly affects performance.

Burnin, how did you manage to get the sun below the level of the horizon?

I think this is just fake horizon :] Currently it's not possible to have Corona sun below horizon - the sun always shines on TV... in Corona.
