Same ram, ones yellow and the other is black.

one is illuminated and has LEDs (tracers), the other is plain.

Identical specs though

I must warn you the LEDS are extremely eye hurting bright. The illumination looks very nice though.

They should both have Micron D9 IC's. I guess i am partial to the black heat spreaders cause I have the DDR2 1066 sticks.

The only difference between the Ballistix and the Ballistix Tracers are the color and some cool LEDs on the top of the Tracers.

For 10$, I'd do it if you have a window on your case. If you don't have a window, or don't want any lights, go for the yellow ballistix.
