    I'm looking to get a new amp, either a markbass little markII or a GK 1001RB. I currently only play at church on sunday, but would like to be able to use the amp for small clubs if need be. I'll probably get a 210 or 212 avatar cab. I'm leaning towrds the markbass. Would it be powerful enough for small to medium sized clubs and outdoor gigs?

    Sure, but you'd need more speakers.

    MarkBass LM II....500 watts at 4 ohms.
    G.K. 1001....700 watts at 4 ohms.
    My personal amp is a G.K. 800 head, (300 watts into 4 ohms.)
    I used to drive a 4 ohm Ampeg SVT 810 with my G.K. head. It was used on some very large stages with some very loud groups. Volume was never a problem.
    The secret is to have enough speakers for the 300 watts to work through.
    Between the two cabs you mentioned I'd go with a 212.
    A 212 will work as a "stand-alone" cabinet if need be. A 210, IMHO, is pretty much a near-field monitor and will need P.A. support for almost every job except low volume, very small room gigs.
