Help me choose between 2 wheelsets

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Evaluate these 2 wheelsets

Evaluate the following candidates:

(1) Shimano 105s (the lighter silver version) less than 100 miles - $150 locally

(2) Mavic Open Pro CD with Ultegra - Performance $250 total including tax/shipping.

Thanks
