Well, they are both pretty equal in price. The tracers have the lighting and would look real good in a case with a clear side panel. The LEDs on the top of the modules lets you see what kind of load you have on the memory. Of course I would say go with the Crucial memory. Excellent customer service and tech support.

Just my thoughts.

Well I understand the difference is just in leds, but what about performance. Is there a better set that's also compatible with my setup? There's a list of ram that are compatible, but I didn't study it yet.

In this case, and having used both of these models Crucial would be my choice by far.

Crucial modules (running at standard speeds) are pretty much considered as Micron originals, which rank amongst the best modules for data integrity.

Crucial over Corsair is generally the better decision (opinion)

Is there a specific model thats ranked the highest performance. The ones I listed are within a good range of price. I'm not to sure on performance on this model compared to other Crucial. Like...Should I look into the PC3200 over the PC4000? Is balistix better than plain jane crucial? I'm not familiar with this brand at all.
