The FX5900 is the fastest out of your list although in some games, the 9600XT will outperform it. If money's not an issue then I would recommend getting a Radeon 9800 instead.

Ya, the radeon is the best, dont touch the fx series if u can avoid it, even with forceware drivers, it is not worth it, they are just not worth it tbh
