Default Gainward or Gigabyte GPU

Ok. I want to buy a graphics card. My options are:

Gigabyte 9800GT or Gainward 250GTS or Gigabyte 4770.

The Nvidia ones are the same price and the ATI one is AU$16 cheaper.
So which one would should I get or name an equivalent.

Thanks.

putting brands aside, gts 250 performs better than other 2
hd 4770 performs similar to 9800gt

Yes I know. So that's why I'm asking about brands. If the 4770 performs similar to the 9800gt, I'd rather get the 4770 but I favour Nvidia more. I need a more conclusion answer.

Thanks.

"Performs Better" is not conclusive enough for you?

Well, I was hoping you would tell me which one to get out of the Nvidia ones.

Considering the prices again, I think I'll go with the Gigabyte Radeon HD 4770 for AU$16 cheaper than the 250GTS.
