eVGA 6600GT

The 6600GT will outperform the 6800, not the 6800GT, but the plain 6800, a lot has to do with the fact that the 6800 doesn't use the new GDDR3 memory like the 6600GT , 6800GT etc..etc..

Anywho that's my suggestion, I think it'll serve you well out of those cards you listed.

eVGA IMO is a better quality card manufacturer and are now more recently known for their cards overclockability because they put on a good heatsink.

Link doesn't work. Make sure it has a good strong +12v rail, this is where people generally mess up. I would suggest trying to find one with 18a on the +12v rail
