I don't know if you already tried Google, but here's something I found really quick comparing the two:

I remember a few weeks ago I found an article comparing XP SP2 vs XP SP3 vs Vista Vanilla vs Vista SP1. I'm pretty sure XP SP2 was the best out of the 4 but I can't find the exact article again unfortunately. I would assume that XP SP3 doesn't really offer anything special to boost gaming performance, but security might be a bit better with XP SP3 compared with XP SP2.
