Default Which GTX 670 should I go for?

Hello fellow techs:

I decided to upgrade my 460 GTX to a 670 GTX, I was planning on waiting for the next Nvidia series but I decided to scrap that idea.

To which I come to you fellow techies, which GTX 670 below $400 is the most worth recommended buy?

I have seen several nice options which I linked below, but I really appreciate any inputs or suggestions. This will be mostly for gaming on primary monitor, the others 2 are for multitasking purposes even while playing games.

Thanks in advance

I like the EVGA because of their warranty. I think the best bet is to go by whichever one will last the longest and have the best warranty because all 4 of the cards you linked should perform about the same.

The eVGA.

Just an FYI, the 700 series will be only a refresh so similar performance numbers.
