Default Purchasing a new video card today need your help!

Hey guys im doing my final upgrade to an aging computer...I have a ASUS P5N-D MOBO and was thinking of upgrading to one of the following three video cards. Could anyone tell me if these are all compatible? And which one would be the best in regard to performance, preferably something quiet.

Asus NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 2GB DDR3 PCI-E Video Card (GT630-2GD3) : Video Cards - Future Shop

Zotac GeForce GT 630 1GB DDR5 PCI-E Video Card : Video Cards - Future Shop

EVGA GeForce GT 630 1GB DDR3 PCI-E Video Card (01G-P3-2631-KR) : Video Cards - Future Shop

The EVGA GTX 650ti is a better card. I have the 2 gig version. Runs great.
The only 650ti appears to be a Zotac brand with which I'm not familiar. However the link is to a EVGA GTX 650.

The DDR5 you refer to is GDDR5. It's internal to the vid card.
As for choosing a vid card, the EVGA. I've used that brand for years and not one moment's problem.

Ok I see...so if you had a choice you would go for the evga one? I would like to go for the one you recommended but I don't have the funds, needed something around the price point of the ones I listed.
