    To put it simply, enabling SuExec and SuPHP is good because you can more easily locate which users are using the most server resources, or abusing the server. However, enabling these does come at a performance decrease. Though many prefer the performance decrease to the hassle of running all scripts as user nobody, making it difficult to track abusers.

    Performance impact is negligible to non-existent and not worth mentioning.

    If you know what you are doing, it doesn't really make any impact whatsoever even in the slightest but adds HUGE gains in security plus adds substantially increased ability to monitor and log activities on the server.
