They are all good cards. If I was going to pick the GS I'd go with eVGA. The X800 GTO II is also very nice.

Id go for the EVGA 6800gs myself. Both ATI cards look good too. Id stay away from xfx myself, ther have a bad reputation for having problems and being a pain in general.
A+ certified.
I now am on the interweb:

Go with the eVGA 6800GS like what was stated before. If you scrounge up enought money you can use their step-up program and get a better card. The two ATIs are fine but just stay away from the xfx. Like what was also stated, they are unreliable.

if you plan on getting UT 2007, the ATI cards won't be that good for it. they don't have smartshader 3, which the Unreal3 engine needs to get good performance.
