The second ones have better timings and are cheaper. Seems like a no-brainer, unless I'm missing something :).

I'd agree with Revs with one qualification. You are using an x64 OS yes? If not try a 3x1Gb kit.

Save yourself some money and get this:

3x2Gb, 1600Mhz, 7-7-7-24 timings and 1.65v

$95 - $20 mir = $75

... plus you get a free 8Gb flash drive. :p
