Having to choose one or the other, take the protien. As other have said, creatine helps with strength and endurance, but without the support of proper nutrition (ample protien intake) and rest, creatine's properties are useless. Protien is a necessary macronutrient used as a bulding block to new muscle growth, creatine is merely a supplement.
I'd suggest trying a couple different brands until you can find one that's palatable for you. I haven't found a direct correlation with cost and flavor, but some of the cheaper protiens I have taken weren't worth the savings, either in taste or bioavailability.
