I'd suggest you went for neither. Rijndael is the AES
(http://csrc.nist.gov/encryption/aes/) block cypher of choice. You can take it all the
way up to 256 and its a standard. Of course that can mean one of two things: it was
approved either because it can be broken, or because it is infact good. How paranoid
are you 8-)
I don't know though how fast it is.
