For NFS not. But RaiserFS is realy faster then ext2.

I am using ext3 and have in some Mailboxes (e.g. linux-kernel) 
7-8000 Messages without any problems using a "3Com Superstack II 
3900 Switch" where my NFS-Server is on a GBit Port.

But use a self-compiled Linux with nfs and nfsd compiled WITH 
"TCP" and "v3" support.

if you mount your server add "nfsvers=3,tcp" to it otherwise it 
will use UDP which is realy not good.
