Crank and BB recommendations

Im building a xc bike with a few trial components on it.
Any recommendations for a crankset only by Truvativ? Im trying to keep with the branding as I have already purchased SRAM/Rock Shox/Avid components. Im planning on getting a 8 or 9-speed cassette.
Are there any significant differences/ advantages with their trail and XC cranksets?
The most i can spend on this is $150 as the funds to this project are started to run out Of course, the cheaper the better.

I was looking at 2 models:

the Truvativ Isoflow Crankset here:http://cgi.ebay.com/CRANKSET-BIKE-MT...3286.m20.l1116

the Truvativ Firex 3.3 GXP here: http://cgi.ebay.com/CRANKSET-BIKE-MT...ayphotohosting
