Default Which of the three is the winner?

Ok i have come to my conclusion and the choices are:

The Evga 8800gts 320mb for $220: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130082

The Gigabyte 880gt 256mb for $205: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125085

The Asus HD 3850 512mb for $200: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121219

out of these 3 choices which one would be better for high resolution gaming (1680x1050)

The EVGA 8800GTS 320MB is the best performer of those three.

No...maybe if it was the G92 8800GTS, but it's the G80.

The 8800GT is the fastest card of those 3. Definitely get the second one, the Gigabyte 8800GT.

I'd get the HD 3850, it's performance is on par with the 8800GT 256MB and the old 8800GTS (sometimes better) and it's the cheapest of the three.

From what I've heard, the 256MB takes a big performance hit from the reduced memory amount and clock.
