Arrow this one or that one?

Im building a new pci-e rig and can not decide on a video card for it. I currently have a ati 9800 pro 256mb card (agp). I am looking for a card equal if not better than it.

I was looking at these,

EVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6600GT Video Card:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-214&depa=1

MSI nVIDIA GeForce 6600GT Video Card:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-147&depa=1

GIGABYTE nVIDIA GeForce 6600GT Video Card:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...125-156&depa=1

Which is the best out of those? I dont wanna spend crazy money for the 6800gt. Any suggestions? I dont want to spend more than 225 bucks.

*The card will be going into the specs below if that makes any difference....

Is the evga going to be better than my current ati 9800 pro (agp). The 9800 has 256mb and the evga has 128mb.

Don't think because the card has higher memory the card is better, this is not the case at all.
