What are you talking about using a checksum to do? There isn't anywhere near enough information in your question.

It is easy. Just add the computed column based on a CHECKSUM and test the SP speed...

CHECKSUM is useful if you need to compare long data record change etc. More info: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189788(v=sql.110).aspx

You should also look at BINARY_CHECKSUM and CHECKSUM_AGG.

Drawbacks: some data types are not suitable for CHECKSUM.
