Default which of the two?

Newegg.ca - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
or
G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK PC2-8500 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1066 CL5-5-5-15 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit - DirectCanada

I could go with this new binned RAM (Red.skill?) for $52 from newegg.ca (only place in Canada with these it seems) + $12 in shipping, to try them out ( 6-6-6-18) or I can go with the (Blue.skill?) that everyone knows for $68 (5-5-5-10) and have them PDQ (pickup from NCIX, of course).

being they're new, I'm sorely tempted to go with the red vs. the blue. what say have you?

PK from DC? I thinks I can understand DC standing for DirectCanada...but I don't follow the PK. PK and GS or BS don't match,
