Nginx RP: a lot of rewrite rules

I've two freebsd 9.1 vm (2 corees, 4gb ram) with nginx-1.2.7 in
active/passive mode (using carp), acting as a reverse proxy to 4
apache22 backend (2 cores, 4gb ram).
I should set 800 simple rewrite rules, such as:
rewrite ^/something/foo.html /bar.html permanent;
I cannot use any regexp to optimize all these rules, I have no
scripting language enabled (the vhosts will serve only static pages, the
apache22 backend will use SSI too).
Here the question:
Is it better to use (in terms of performances, reliability, load on the
reverse proxy) the rewrite rules on the nginx reverse proxy, or use the
rewrite rules on the apache22 backend?
