Gem question which is better

I manytimes see win and ruby edition of gems and have to decide which
one to install. i dont know how to choose and which one is better
for eg
Select which gem to install for your platform (i386-mswin32)

  1. win32-api 1.0.5 (ruby)
  2. win32-api 1.0.5 (x86-mswin32-60)
  3. win32-api 1.0.4 (mswin32)
  4. win32-api 1.0.4 (ruby)
  5. Skip this gem
  6. Cancel installation

Assuming the gem in question needs compilation, ‘ruby’ is source code
gem, ‘mswin32’ and others are prebuilt binaries for the specific
platform/compiler
