Decide between Gigabyte and MSI, gigabyte should quieter but Overclocks a little less and MSI should be a little louder and overclock better, the other options are not worth the money.

Get the xfx. I have had no problems with their products. You don't need to oc your card to play games. I know I may sound crazy but I would consider a 5850. More streaming processes.
