Well that all depends. Do you want to DIY this project. Spray foam is not typically a DIY job, although it can be done with rented equipement. Spray foam will also be alot more expensive. I would figure out the cost of doing both and you might get your answer pretty quick. I have a couple buddies that own a spray foam insulation outfit and they still haven't been able to convince me that it WAYYYY better than traditional insulation methods.

Price it out, that may make your decision for you.

There are a million "Basement Insulation" threads in the 'Insulation' section with a million and one helpful links. Read up on them and that should be helpful to you also.
