Help me to decide which card is the best

I have 3 options to buy geforce 8600 GT card:

1. XFX GF 8600GT, 1GB, DUAL DVI PCI-E

2. Expert Vision nVidia GF 8600GT 256MB DDR3 128bit Dual DVI,TV Out

3. ECS nVidia GeForce 8600GT 512MB DDR2 DirectX 10, 128bit, PCI-E

All cards will cost me the equal. What confuses me is that some cards have 256MB of DDR3, some 512MB of DDR2 or 1GB of DDR memory... So, I was wondering what should I chose?? What is the best?

It it matters, here are my PC details:
Intel Pentium 3.2 MHZ
Motherboard: Asus p5gd1 pro
2 GB DDR1

Please help!

    you will not even be able to use the 1GB of memory considering the fact that its a 128-bit bus, and that its simply too weak of a gpu....

    go with the one with the GDDR3 memory, btw the don't use DDR3 memory its a typo...
