Two questions:

1. Which one of these is better bargain?

2. Why is 1600 Mhz model is lower cost?

Longer explanations will be appreciated, thank you.

cas 9 (lower is better) is the industry standard for 1333, and cas 11 is the industry standard for 1600.
I wish I had the long explanation. If tradesman isnt awake, you will have to go with the cheapest on trust.
Its unlikely you would lose anything. Those timings indicate similar ram densities, so go with the one that has been rated at 1600 meg.
Sue me later, we are only talking 2 dollars here.
Or put another way, 1 kit has been rated to run at 1600 meg industry standard timings, and the other one hasnt. The one that hasnt is more expensive because the seller's wife wants a gold watch./diamond ring/3rd child..

That's a funny way to put it. So out of two XMS3 is clear winner, i guess?
