I want to turn on file auditing on some folders that have a lot of files(10,000+) and subfolders.  It is on a good strong 2008 Server with lots of RAM.  What I want to know is what kind of performance hit or overhead load this will take up?  I also understand the logging is done through event viewer/security.  Is there a painless way to have this exported and sorted?

Not much of a performance hit on the system just takes up disk space.

Here is a new tool for Event Viewer.
