I believe that you are better off saving money by getting the aluminum frame and putting it into upgraded components, especially wheels
The OP asked about weight savings not $$ savings. After all, could get a carbon frame and tricked out wheels/components which would be the best of all worlds.

But if $$$ were an issue, would favor the better frame. Components come and go every year, but a sweet carbon frame is likely to stay around much longer.
