Most of the Mushkin kits in the stores right now are using the same PSC ICs, the main differences would be in the binning (for timings & frequencies) & the heatspreaders.

look at the timmings, and frequency.
timmings = CAS x ( 9,8,7...) tighter is better
frequency = xxxx Mhz (2000, 1600, 1333...) higher is better.

It's rather simple. These are just different series of Mushkin, some better performing and some less. If you're looking for maximum performance, look for Redlines. The Radioactive, Blacklines and Ridgebacks are also good. They're basically slightly timing-loosened Redlines performance-wise and are slightly cheaper. Silverline and Proline are less on the performance side, more on the budget side. So basically -

Maximum Performance - Redline
Performance - Radioactive, Blackline, Ridgeback
Budget - Silverline, Proline

There isn't that much of a difference between Redline&Radioactive,Blackline,Ridgeback.
