Better in what regard? Out of the two kits, the CMY8GX3M2B2133C9R offers the better stock performance at specified settings (DDR3-2133 vs DDR3-1600).

I would personally go with the Vengeance Pro kit as it's stock speeds are higher. I'm always willing to pay a bit more for a little more speed on my memory because OCing memory can be an absolute pain. There are other colors available though, so if red won't fit your build make sure and look for the other colors! (Blue, silver, gold)
