Guitar Rig or POD HD?

Okay, so I want to get a nice little recording set up and I currently don't have the ability to mic up an amp due to volume restrictions at my house and such. Anyhow, I've narrowed it down to Guitar Rig 5 PRO and a POD HD (Desktop). I've checked out the Guitar Rig 5 a bit at my friend's house and messed with it and I really enjoy the Van 51 amp model, but I had difficulties dialing in good tones with the other amp simulations. However, the tones I did achieve were very cool. On the other hand, there's the new POD HD unit. Now, I've owned a POD GX before and I used it extensively in my recordings with great success. But, is the POD HD really much better, or rather, worth the $400? All in all, I don't have the opportunity to try both and I'm wondering if anyone here at UG can chime in and help me out a bit.

I play metal, primarily, in the style of Devourment, Decapitated, Putridity, Periphery, Meshuggah, Deftones, so on and so forth.
