From my recent experiences, I can say ext3 is probably not a great choice for Pg databases. If you check the archives you'll see there's a lot of discussion about various journalling filesystems and ext3 usually(always?) comes up on the bottom as far as performance goes. If you insist on using it, I would at least recommend the noatime option in fstab and using data=writeback to get the faster of the journal modes.

XFS seems to be a trusted choice, followed by Reiser and JFS both with the occasional controversy when the comparisons pop up.
