You can hit homeruns with both depending on your power stat and the location of your swing, velocity of the pitch, etc. I think a power swing gives you a power boost, and I seem to hit homeruns easier with it. If I guess a high fastball, I typically use a power swing, other than that I use a regular one. A power swing is going to be more likely to fly out easily or swing and miss.
