Which would result in better performance:

private decimal _amtGroup1  = 0;

_amtGroup1 += Convert.ToDecimal(string.Format("{0:C}", Convert.ToDecimal(Fields["CurrentMonthAmountFinanced"].Value.ToString())));

_amtGroup1 += System.Math.Round(Convert.ToDecimal(Fields["CurrentMonthAmountFinanced"].Value), 2);

The better question to ask yourself:  Is there a significant enough difference between these two that I should care about performance?

I suspect that the second will perform better because string.Format has a lot going on under the hood.

In addition to what kaufmed has told you.
You can always just create a loop to perform the operation multiple times and time how long the loop takes by querying the system for time at start and end.
If you had a profiler you could use that to time each operation.
