How is performance related to type of operation?

I've been trying to evaluate the performance issues regarding usage of InnoDB vs. MyISAM. I understand that InnoDB has, in general, a higher overhead due to its support for transactions, foreign keys, etc. My particular application is performance sensitive with respect to adding records to a MySQL database, but not so much with respect to executing queries against that database. Does anyone have any opinions regarding the performance trade-off between InnoDB and MyISAM in this kind of environment?

Thanks much,
