chatbox VS shoutbox Empty chatbox VS shoutbox

A member of my forum proposed me to put a shoutbox in the forum instead of chatbox.
We talked about it and we are not sure which is the best.
The problem mentioned was that maybe when there are a lot of members writing to chatbox, the whole forum will Slow Down.

The point here is.. which are the main differences between the two?

Shoutboxes let you see what people are talking about without having to hit the archives button. It is much like a Chatbox not much dfference :\

A shoutbox is used more for giving quick feedback etc. A chatbox is used for conversations.
