I'm a noob, and dont understand timings so which kit will preform better on a x79 system?

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 1600MHz 9-9-9-24

or

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 2133MHz 11-11-11-30
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If the second one, is the performance difference enough to justify the $30 price difference

Yes I know you have to xmp the second one.

feel free to make any suggestions.

Hi. You need to XMP the first one also, just so you know.
I would go with the first kit. The second kit isn't worth the extra money.
