Alternate journaling modes in ext3 can also have a positive affect on write speed if you are willing to accept a higher probability of data corruption in the event of a crash. 

Have you considered using ReiserFS? Depending on what kind of data you are storing you may be able to take advantage of some of Reisers strengths.
