This set of benchmarks finds that there's no clear winner in every category, but maintains that with the added value of journaling thrown in, all provide a better "value" than ext2:

"First of all, there is no a clear winner, XFS is better in some aspects or cases, ReiserFS in others, and both are better than Ext2 in the sense that they are comparable in performance (again, sometimes faster, sometimes slightly slower) but they a journaling file systems, and you already know what are their advantages... And perhaps the most important moral, is that Linux buffer/cache is really impressive and affected, positively, all the figures of my compilations, copies and random reads and writes. So, I would say, buy memory and go journaled ASAP... "
