While the filesystem can affect performance, I don't think the differences
are likely to be significant when compared to hardware issues: IDE vs SCSI
vs RAID, onboard cache on the controller, System memory set aside for disk
After you have optimized your hardware then you'll still need to worry
about Block sizes, before worrying about which of the high-level file
systems to use.
