More mixing channels or Higher resolution?

So I'm mixing with an 003 now. Just getting started with protools really. I can run 18 channels at 48k or run 10 channels at 81 or 92. I'm using a combination of hardware and software and mixing on a Xsum mixer. So, I can do some things like use only two outputs on the DA for drums (mixing the drums in the box), split that signal and run one pair to the drum comp (SSL) and two channels right to the mixer and vary to taste instead of having each drum have it's own DA then mixing it on the XSUM. My point is, I can get by with 10 channels fine but would have less individual tracks going to the Xsum. 1 stereo guitar mix instead of 5 individual guitars. In general, I think I'd gain in resolution and the sound of my plugins, however, you can get a more powerful sound with more channels in the mixer, from what I've been use to in the past with other set ups.
So which is the way to go?
