Uhm, looks like the difference is the model number... and the heat spreaders. They might be higher-binned chips, but it's hard to tell.

Yeah, I'm gonna go with looks and those heat-spreaders. I would save your money for a month or 2 though. The price on DDR3 is going down real fast.

That is weird. Usually the ones with the fancy spreaders are the high performance G.Skills, but in this case it apparently isn't.

The more expensive memory is their HK series, which they consider their premium memory. I would guess it has the best memory chips on it.
Their old HK 2x1 DDR2 800 sticks (the black ones) were some of the best overclocking RAM out.
Not sure if it is worht the $129 difference though.

Definitely. It's up to you, however, to determine how much you want to spend on your build.
