they both DDR3 1600mhz except the 2nd link has higher latency... id go with the first link.
if you wanted to OC the ram, looser timings will give you more speed ;)

Edit... sorry the 2nd link is DDR3 2000mhz... id go with the second link as youd probably get the same timings as the first link at 1600mhz... and you have the headroom of 2000mhz to play with in your overclocking
