Go with the advice cdub998 gave you. Get the ram with tighter timings as they will perform more work in less clock cycles. If you're a gamer or someone who uses 3D rendering softwares then you will definitely feel the improvement in performance when using ram with tighter timings.
There are three things I'd like to add though:

1) I think you copy/pasted the Geil timings erroneously because logically they should be (Cas 2.5-3-3-6) instead of (Cas 2.5 6-3-3).

2) Don't be fooled by slogans like "Ultra Low Noise Technology". Have you ever seen a ram module that generates audible noise ? I haven't. So unless you're someone with supersonic hearing... forget about that comment. It's only meant to impress people with little knowledge. As always, nice marketing slogans sell !

3) Both OCZ and Geil are great brand names. You should rely on the specs (SPD ratings) in this case.

The "noise" is a relavant factor... I believe it's relative to the harmonics created by electrical impulses traveling through a circut.
Perhaps an electronic expert could shed some light on this factor.
Here is an article on there tech.

Regardless, I would save for the Geil with the better timings

Dang ! They were talking about noise and interference.
Hmmm, now I feel stupid !
Anyway, concerning noise (unwanted electrical signals) I once read that DDR2 has a new technology incorporated in it.
In DDR, the mobo deals with noise and interference whereas in DDR2 this process is done by the memory module itself thus allowing noise to be removed faster. This is known as On Die Termination in DDR2.
Thanks The Duke for bringing me back to reality.
