deciding between a new older mbp or a refurbished unibody... deciding factor is graphics card...

512mb 8600m VS 256mb 9600m - which is faster/better?

the 9600m is supposed to be a better card, but will it outperform the 512mb 8600m with only 256mb of memory?

edit: ill be using it mainly as a -digital audio workstation to record vocals, make hip/hop & r&b instrumentals-
and also some video editing. id also like to be able to play starcraft 2 whenever it comes out lol
