Default Getting new GPU (last thread on this i pomise)

i need to upgrade my GPU as my current one is crap (X550 PCI-E -Core- 400Mhz, Mem-200Mhz) i want to get DX10 despite everyone saying its pointless as i want to have the latest, i made a bad descision getting a 939 mobo over AM2 just becuase it was cheaper.

I'm looking at:

MSI 8600GT 256MB OverClocked Edition Dual DVI HDTV PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer

Inno3D 8600GT 256MB 128bit DDR3 DVI PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer

Gecube 2600XT 256MB GDDR4 Dual DVI HDCP X-Turbo Silent Fan Edition PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer

XFX 8600GT 256MB DDR3 540MHz Core Clock 2xDVI PCI-E - Ebuyer

I hear the 8600GTs, are quite the overclocker. So just go for the cheapest one, which is the Inno3D brand, and overclock it.
