What roller rocker arms should I get?

Hello guys I will be buying some roller rocker arms 1.5 ratio for a small block chevy. I am on a really tight budget and don't have the extra money to buy 200 plus doller ones. I am looking at two different sets. The first ones are from summit racing and they are around 160 bucks and they are extrud aluminum full roller and look good. The other ones are in Skip whites store on ebay and they are wysco stainless roller rocker arms for around 125 bucks shipped. I will be using a xtreme energy hydraullic roller cam 224/230 @50 duration with 502,510 lift 1.5 ratio with world product sportsman II heads with 1.437 manley dual valve springs wich specs at 125 pounds seat and around 350 lbs open pressure. Wich ones would you get and for durability wise and such. This will be in a daily driver and will not see any track time just a nice street rod.
Thanks Eric

wysco is not a reputable brand.
Go with the Summits.

no problem, there are a lot of ebay scam artist out there posingas good comapnies, WIESCO is a good company, wysco is probably reboxed Proform crap.
