option one is the cheapest i think, if the option 3 is the overclocked version dw about it, you can achieve those overclocks by yourself. but yeah agreed 4850 is probably the best performance card for the money atm.

Are you stuck on Asus? I have heard and read bad things about Asus for video cards.

Exactly what I was going to say. VisionTek has Lifetime Warranty. Get VisionTek if the price difference isn't too big from the cheapest one available. You don't need to buy overclocked version of the HD 4850.
