Hmmm... muffler alone? vs magnaflow catback

here is a newbie question,

since a catback system doesnt provide any HP gain on our car but only a deeper sound, would changing for some aftermarket muffler would do the same thing for cheaper?

what are the pros and cons?

which one that i can buy with decent quality and would fit out car perfectly?

Mazda 6s 2004

edit: never mind, i answered some of part of my question

defintely get the catback. it will provide minimal gain but you will get real gains once you open it up from the intake side. (intake and header/s) since the catback system has bigger piping from, well, the catback. and just a muffler uses stock piping.
I have the magnaflow and love it, you can usually get a used one on ebay or cragislist. I wanted a valid warranty so I got it here. Magnaflow 14864. Also some of the forum sponsors selling magnaflow usually have a sale going on. Either way its a great cat, sounds great, and very easy to install.
