Hi.. I need advise on RJ45 Jack for my upcomming ENC28J60 related final year project.

I found this jack from tyco (model number 5-6605308-1) from http://catalog.tycoelectronics.com/TE/bin/TE.Connect?C=1&M=BYPN&PID=407680&PN=5-6605308-1

I also found this jack from Stewart Connector (model number SI-50158-F) from **broken link removed**

In my country, the one from tyco is cheaper than the one from Stewart Connector. My preference is to buy the one from tyco because it is cheaper and i am also tight on budget. However, I am afraid that it cannot be used.
Can somebody please advise me on which one i should buy..? What are the significant differences (if any).. The only thing i could think of is quality but then, how different is the quality.. and is the difference in quality significant..?
I am just afraid of buying the wrong one cause those are expensive..

Are there any other jacks with built in magnetics which are cheaper..? I live in Malaysia.

Thanks for the advice.

If this is for Ethernet you're violating the physical layer specs, you need magnetic issolation. You could buy new RJ45 jacks that have the magnetics built in like Mea said but they're expensive. MagJack is the only one I can think of off the top of my head.
