Question Which GPU is better?

So, I've decided to build myself a computer, but I'm kind of hesitant as to which GPU I should pick.. I've nailed it down to 3.

First One: EVGA GTX260 nVidia: Amazon.com: EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX260 Core 216-55nm Superclocked 896 MB DDR3 2DVI PCI-Express Video Card 896-P3-1257-AR: ElectronicsSecond one: Sapphire Radeon HD6770 AMD: Amazon.com: Sapphire Radeon HD6770 1 GB DDR5 DVI/ HDMI/ DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card 100328L: Electronicshird one: EVGA GTS450 nVidia: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Performance-Mini-HDMI-Graphics-01G-P3-1450-TR/dp/B0041RRNBM/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1322877042&sr =1-1


W

what's your criteria for your choices ? the 260 is old and power hunger, so honestly unless its cheap stay away from it. the 6770is the smartest choice
