Are you shooting RAW+JPEG? Because otherwise what you're asking doesn't really make sense... you shouldn't have a different file for each color space.

Drop the 10 points. It did not solve my question. When I am shooting from my nikon I am asked which shooting menu I want. I take the one image quality RAW+fineJpeg. And i get both when I download to Aperture. Which one should I keep in my library?

In 99% of cases you want the RAW file.
Can I ask why you're shooting RAW+JPEG? In general, unless you have a very specific workflow (i.e. shooting 2000 shots for a sporting event, and getting them to an editor), a RAW-only workflow makes a lot more sense than RAW+JPEG because with Aperture you can create a JPEG from the RAW any time you want.
So keep the RAW file. But Aperture will import them both, and managing that takes more work and effort unless you have a very specific reason for shooting RAW+JPEG.
