Unhappy Which Visa..Subclass 175 or 176 ?

Hello Guys,
My name is kris (from India)and I am new to this community. Thanks to all the people who take their time to read and clarify other's doubts.

Coming to the point...

I want to apply for a PR and I am not sure which is the best Visa should I apply for Subclass 175 - Skilled Independent or Subclass 176 Skilled Sponsored. My sister is living in Australia and she is a PR holder.

For class 175, I understand you need 120 points.. I took the IELTS exam recently and i got 7 in 3 modules and 6.5 in one... Which has resulted my overall PR points at 115 (not eligible). However, I checked for the skilled sponsored visa requirements (subclass 176) For that U need 100 points which makes me eligible...

What my question is....
1. Which is the best Visa to apply for... 175 or 176?
2. What would be the total process time if I apply for Visa 176 ?

Would be great if someone could help me !

You will see some thoughts on 175/176 @ http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...gible-all.html
A state sponsored 176 will have a higher priority than a 175 but a family sponsored 176 application will be the same as a 175.
