There only one answer to any performance-related question: profile.

In some circumstances, re-using the buffer may be faster.  In others,
creating a new one is faster.  That could change depending on a number
of factors, not least of which is the GC you're using (and Mono will be
getting a new GC with 2.0).

So the only way to know for sure is to write the app (or a minimal test
app) and profile it to see where time is _actually_ being spent, instead
of just speculating.

Under mono, you can use the --profile option to turn on profiling.  See
the mono(1) man page for more information (search for PROFILING).
