Go with kingston, never heard of the other brand.
The majority of motherboards (if not all) come with built in networking cards, I'd look into that if I were you, unless your not spending any extra $$ on the PC.
A quick check here will reveal this under specifications

Also I'm skeptical of that power supply, usually when they come with cases, it's a lower end power supply. In many instances the power fluctuates so much that it lowers the lifespan on the components running on it and in many more it shorts out taking components if not the entire rig with it. Your choice, this power supply will handle your rig, but the risk is up to you.
