I like to use unimportant.

But I think either is OK.

There is a little bit of difference for these two words. Depend how you phrase it.

Example 1: Health is very important, money is unimportant.

Example 2: To me, health is very important, money is not that important.

In example 1, money is out.  However, in example 2, money is still a considerable factor.
