Either should be compatible with the motherboard. Both are 1.5V DDR3, with similar timings.

One warning: there can be compatibility issues due to mixing RAM from different makers. It's safest to avoid that. (Costs more, of course.) As it's a desktop motherboard, you may be able to solve compatibility issues by manually setting the RAM timings.

The better buy would be the least expensive. I've not bought any RAM from Transcend, but as far as I know, they're as good as any. I've had good luck with Corsair and Gskill.

thanks for reply. The issue i have is with frequency as Transcend offer very low frequency 166 mhz, while other offer much better frequency of 667 mhz. How much it will affect the performence.
