For pure computational speed, VB and C# are equivalent to each other and will be much faster than IronRuby.

Whether you see the performance difference in real code will depend on where the bottleneck in your application is. For web application, it is highly unlikely that your app's perceived performance will bottleneck in the code that renders HTML. It is far more likely the case that you'll bottleneck on your database or some other shared resource.
