    320 without VBR (or 320 CBR) is better than 256VBR, but not as efficient. I doubt you'll hear the difference to be honest, not many can.

    If your ripping an entire collection, you'll save more disk space if you go with 256VBR and you won't hear the difference.

    If that's the case, why not rip as Apple Lossless or FLAC?

    Why don't you rip a song using the iTunes Plus setting and then rip the same song as 320 Kbps CBR and see if you can tell a difference between the two on your system. If you can't, go with the iTunes Plus since you only have 8GB to store all the music on.

    I really don't think you will be able to tell a difference.
