I would go for the OCZ Platinums. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210
They offer exceptional performance for the money. Too bad you cant get crucial ballistix. The Micron chips are works of wonders. But the OCZs will fair nicely.

XMS series are more geared for performance than a ValueSelect RAM. They can handle OC better and generate lower latency. I think if you're paying that much for it, it's got to be a performance RAM. I like Corsair RAM. I'm using a set right now.

ooooo, both are pretty good. I personally never used the OCZ before but they do have impressive specs. Do you happen to have the links to the RAM you picked out? You can kind of tell which ones are better by looking at the specs themselves.
