I'm a huge fan of the HDT S1283. It has an amazingly low price and fantastic performance. Costing less than half of high end coolers and performing just as well.

This is better, but you're paying more for it. Doesn't come with a fan either.

There is actually only a couple degrees of difference between the 2 coolers. But, it's costing $65 plus shipping, when the Xigmatek is around $30 cheaper. It actually beats the Tru-120 in a lot of tests.

Definitely better than the Arctic Freezer. Especially when you're overclocking.

Uh, can you rephrase that question? If you're talking about what version, it depends on what you do. If you watch a lot of movies and focus on media. You should get the Media Center Edition. If you get 32 bit, you can only use about 4GB of RAM. Not all of it shows up, though. With 64 bit, you can use as much as your motherboard supports.
