Help choosing between two processors

    I have before me two choices in effects/modeling processors. They are the DigiTech BP80 Bass Multi-Effect Pedal and the Behringer Bass V-AMP Modeling Preamp.

    The primary difference is the area of most use; the Digitech has 40 factory effects and 40 user effects, with some modelling on it. So it's more effect-centric. The Behringer, however, seems to be more based around amp and cab modeling, though it also has some effects.

    Right now I'm playing through some no-name Yamaha head (around 300 watts I think) and a 2x15 cab, both of which I'm borrowing from a bandmate. When I upgrade these, as I expect to in the future, it occured to me that through amp modeling of my current system, I could figure out what kinds of amps and cabs I might prefer to get in the future.

    So what are your opinions on this?
