Arrow Need help selecting on GFX card

Hi all. I wanna get a GFX card which is under $400 USD. I'm going to be using the computer for 3D animations (such as 3ds max, Maya, Lightwave,) also Photoshop and other CG (Computer Graphic) applications. I'm also going to be gaming (World of Warcraft and HL2). But mainly, the 3D animation. As far as I'm concerned, ATI has problems with 3D animation because they lack OpenGL support (I heard). So I'm looking for a nVidia Card.
So far, these are the cards I'm interested in

6600 GT
6800 GT
6800 Ultra

What do you think?
Any suggestion of a card?
Thanks alot

eVGA 6800 GT, it can easily be overclocked to Ultra speeds and faster- It also comes with Doom 3 for free! If you don't want it you know who needs it...
