RowCreated occurs after a row and all of its child controls are created.

RowDataBound occurs after the row (and its controls) are databound, i.e. populated with the data values.

The answer about which to use really depends on if you need the databound values or not.
e.g. If you wanted to change the background color of your row based the value of one of your fields, then you would have to use the RowDataBound event. If your logic doesn't depend on the data, then I don't think it matters which event you use.

An example of where you would have to use RowCreated is if you had a drop down list in your row that would need to be popluated with values before the selected value was databound.

RowCreated is focused on parsing Gridview row's definition and creating the Gridview row's control structure,

RowDataBound is focused on bind data to the row's controls created in the RowCreated.

Also RowCreated is invoked automatically in both init and postback case, but RowDataBound is only invoke when the DataBind is called.
