Both are good.You can't go wrong with either.But if you aren't going to OC,then go with the Corsair one.It's slightly faster

Corsair. You'll also have an easier time overclocking your CPU with it.

I'd go with the Corsair, even if you want overclock are much faster.

They are PC3 1333 (G.Skill) and PC3 1600 (Corsair) memories. A PC3 1333 has data rate about 1333 Megatransfers/second (MT/s) and 1600 MT/s for PC3 1600. So the corsair has shorter cycle time than the g.skill. It makes the corsair a little bit faster than g.skill, in normal condition of course...
