I think the answer depends on what you want to do with it, and what other pistols are you comparing it against.

Certainly depends on the price you can get it for too.

Kimber makes a nice production gun but there is a breaking point in their price list. I have several Kimbers. A couple older customized Colts, STI 2011, Smith, SA, Dan Wesson, Essex framed custom, Ed Brown, Wilson and Nighthawk in my safe.

For the cost of what a new Super Match would cost me I would order a Dan Wesson Valor with adjustable sights and a blended magwell.

to save some coin a stainless Gold Match sent back for checkering and magwell will likely do anything the SM can unless you can truely hold a one inch group. My '03 model Team Match will shoot under 2" with my bulk reloads from a Ransom Rest I have.

The Stainless Gold Match is all silver has Stainless Steel slide and frame, match grade stainless steel barrel fitted by hand by Kimber Custom Shop. Ambidextrous safety, adjustable sight, match grade premium aluminum trigger, Rosewood grips. Weight 38 oz. Available in .45acp, 9mm.

The Super Match is Two Tone has Stainless Steel (Kimpro II finish slide) and Stainless Steel silver frame. Designed for Competition. Each Super Match is guaranteed to have fired a 5-shot, 25-yard, group measuring 1-inch or less center to center. Adjustable sight, ambidextrous safety, stainless steel match grade barrel, chamber and trigger, extended magwell. Weight 39oz. .45acp only.

My most accurate Kimber is a Gold Combat LE, I would put it up against those two any day.

Practically the same except one is all silver the other two tone, Super match has magwell.
If I had to pick between those two, I love the look of the Stainless Gold Match but would probably choose the Super Match.
In theory and on paper the Super Match should be the "better" more accurate pistol due to the accuracy guarantee from Kimber which you don't see that every day.
I would say based on the above info Super Match is worth more money but it really depends on who is pulling the trigger.
