i think the one in your sig is better. ram speed is important. you already have your clock at 2.5ghz which is great.

CPU clock speed is more important then ram speed. Loose timings on the AMD64 platform are not a big deal so if thats what it takes to get your ram in a 1:1 ratio then go for it. Even running a divider to keep it at 400mhz would be fine. CPU clock speed is where you will see a significant performance increase.

pure CPU speed is way better than ram timings, although, the two in the middle should be as low as you can get them
