Default New Video Card for 100.. decisions..?

Hey all. I got some money and am thinking about upgrading my video card. Keep in mind.. Its not THAT much money lol

i got $100 i can throw at a card and it has to be a 512mb card


These are some i am looking at.


Newegg.com - XFX HD-477A-YDFC Radeon HD 4770 512MB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card



or

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N871-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

or


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130513



Trying to get the best i can for as close to $100 as i can get.

Any other opinions/options welcomed as long as they fit my criteria. Thanks all


Looking to play WoW on high res. and newer games on medium res 1920/1080 if its possible

I'm putting my vote on the 9800 GTX+. They perform very well. I've had this exact card, actually.

EDIT: Didn't see the GTS 250... it's slightly faster than the 9800GTX+, but not much.

They'll all do fine on WoW Even up to Crysis they'll rarely skip a beat. Take a look at the GTS 250 benchmarks:
