6500 Series Supervisor 1a or 2 for 200 User Voip Site

For a 200 User VoIP site that requires routing between vlans, would you go with the Supervisor1A+PFC+MSFC2 or the Supervisor2 + PFC2 and use a cisco 2600 series router to route. Callmanager and Unity would be on one ip range and all the phones and voice gateways will be on another.

Cost prohibits us from Going witrh the Supervisor 2 with MSFC

Is the Supervisor2 + PFC2 more important in this senario then the Supervisor1A+PFC+MSFC2 ?

From a cost point of view i would head the Sup1A/PFC/MSFC2, this simply because say you need more grunt than 2600 router in the future it would mean a forklift upgrade as the MSFC2 is not a FRU.

Granted you willnot be able to run fabric enabled cards and DCEF etc but it should more than surfice as it handles control plane traffic a lot faster etc.
