Out of these graphics cards, which should I get?

  1. I'm looking into getting a graphics card for a budget gaming PC. I've narrowed it down to three choices. They're all similarly priced, and all have gotten good customer reviews, and I'm curious as to which would be the best at playing Bioshock, COD 4, etc. at Mid/High settings.

    They all have 256 MB of GDDR3, and have generally similar specs, so your help would be greatly appreciated. Please no "Just go for the 8800GTX, you'll be happier in the long run" posts, as i have a pretty specific budget.

    Those COD4 and Bioshock benchmarks show the X1650 XT running them at max settings at 1024x768 at over 30 FPS, so I'm leaning towards the X1650 XT as of right now. Do you think Bioshock will run on high at 1024x768 with a decent framerate with the X1650XT?

    Out of the cards you have chosen, the EVGA card would do the best job
