I vote XFX, but since you only have a choice for a few i would go with evga.

XFX is by far the worst manufacturer. eVGA tops all in my opinion.

eVGA, Excellent customer support.

You can overclock your GPU and use an aftermarket HSF and they will still grant you a warranty.

I've had a XFX card burn up on me out of the box.
I'm very happy with my eVGA.

I've used both evga and xfx brands....had no problems with either. But I guess I'd go with evga because of their support and warranty service.
