I would decide depending on your noise level preference. If you are fairly particular about noise, then YES go for the larger radiator. It may not show a huge benefit with both running full speed fans, but...if you want quiet and want to reduce your fan speeds...the larger rad will give you much more in that.

If you don't care much about noise, the difference is minimal. You can simply make up the difference with more fan power.

I've always been a big radiator fan...I just really enjoy running really slow speed fans and still have really good performance.
