If a fast filesystem is upmost, try ext2. It's numbers are impressive,
it is the standard. 

The only difference between it and ext3 is the journaling, which
allows for a fast recovery if you have a power outage or something.
The only downside of ext2 is that the disk checking after something
like a power outage  is slow.
