    assume you mean uniqueidentifier datatype, not rowguid property...

    it depends if you need it to be "globally" unique - across multiple servers etc. if not, and is a simple unique key needed, just use an incrementing integer - afterall guids are rather large for indexing on - but like i say, depends what you need, and in some cases, theyre essential...
