FPS?

If I have a choice between 2 Nitros for about the same price. One is full power advertized at 1200 FPS. The other is "detuned" to 695 FPS for IL. I'm not looking for a hunting rifle just a plinker. I'm more interested in accuracy than power. I've got a vintage Blue Streak, that's fun but gets to be work, a 2nd variant of a 160 that shoots good but is pretty weak, and an old 66 Powermaster. Would 500 FPS make a difference in cocking effort and accuracy?
