Windows.forms.timers vs system.timers.timer visual studio 2008

Hello experts, I have a windows form application developed with visual studio 2008.  It is a multithreaded application and I have some timers that do some heavier processing every 3 seconds.  My question is, what type of timer objects should I use the System timers or Windows timers?  What is the difference and which one is better for performance?

...as such, if you use the System.Timers.Timer then you'll need to use Invoke()/Delegates if you need to update the UI.
