Advice on choosing a card, mainly 260-280?

I am almost done with my build, only the GPU left. I want to play mostly newer games Fallout 3, Bioshock, Wow, Farcry 2 etc. (not crysis) on good settings on a 21.5" screen.

My question is should I go with a 275 or a 260 or what? I don't really want to Sli or crossfire.

Here are some cards I was thinking about:


BFG 260

BFG 275

EVGA 280

Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thank You!

    Thanks for the reply.
    It's not an issue if it is actually going to noticeably improve my performance. I just don't want to shell out the dough for minute differences that I won't even notice.
    I hear the 275 is a very good card. On Newegg right now though the 280 I linked is the same price...
