Of those, go with the 9700pro, without a doubt. Newegg is selling a Powercolor 9700pro for $202 right now. If you can jump up to $229, they are also selling a Sapphire 9800pro. Looking at your list, I am guessing you were thinking $150-$200 range though, so 9700pro would be a good choice. Check out the Graphic Cards section of THG for some charts to see whether you think it is worth jumping up to the 9800pro.

Defenitly try to push to a 9800 Pro. I have one and it just rocks! I play FarCry demo with Max detail @ 1024 at 80 fps...
