same, but Ntfs will need defraging less often so it is quicker in the long run ;)

ntfs hardly needs defragmenting, and doing it doesn't affect performance tiil your drive is pretty bad... fat needs it just about every night for performance sake...I guess that means the answer is ntfs.

edit

henyman got his anser in before mine...he's been mighty quick lately
