Here is 3 css file (one is only for IE)

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/screen.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/print.css" type="text/css" media="print">    
<!--[if lt IE 8]><link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/ie.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection"><![endif]-->

If i keep divide scree.css into these css in my website

Now it will be 6 css ( one is only for IE)

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/reset.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/grid.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/typography.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/forms.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/print.css" type="text/css" media="print">    
<!--[if lt IE 8]><link rel="stylesheet" href="css/blueprint/ie.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection"><![endif]-->

If i go for method two for a website even after production . Does it really slowdown the website page loading speed? if yes then how much? How much these 3 extra style sheet will affect site performance?
