Default What is the difference?

I have been posting questions about ram and have decided to buy 2 gigs. Now is where it gets confusing. I am a little bit new to todays technology, and thus not sure what the difference is in some of the ram I have been looking at. I am seeing ram that is similar in price and specs, but with different model numbers. This is an example. These are the two I think I have it narrowed down to, but i'm not sure which one to buy. Why would I choose one over the other?

I am planning on playing a lot of online games and need a good solid ram to do so. I just want to make sure I am getting the right stuff.

I just put my pc's specs on my sig if this helps with the decision between the two, and i'm also considering doing a little overclocking in the future if I can get my system up to snuff.
