Which of these Crucial memory kits would perform better on the same system? Would the difference be significant or problematic in any way?

If this is for the Intel DP55 board, then the DDR3 1866 may not work as the board doesn't support it as per manual (but it may work and clock back to a lower speed).. I would go with the 1600 or below for compatibility..
