I think the above, between Davy and Rob, about says it all, except to add that you really don't have to choose one or the other.  Digitech RPs with my patches are inexpensive.  If you've got an amp you love and you want to add some great new sounds without spending a lot, an RP with my patches does the job.  If you want to gig with an RP alone, that works too--I've been doing that with various RPs since 2003.
