It is know that building strings with += is bad practice since it is slow and we should be using Arrays with join.

Does anyone know where the performance gain begins. [Like the StringBuilder in C# sees gains starting around 10 concats]

I plan on running some tests later on today. I was hoping someone had some insight.

I've never done any tests myself. I figure with everything else that is going on, any performance difference would just be noise unless you are talking on the scale of hundreds or thousands.
