Pls help me to decide the best 1 among them based on
1. Performance
2. Cooling

1. Performance: Whoever has the fastest clock ^.^ you can buy a card that comes overclocked from the factory.
2. Cooling: You have to look at individual cards. Most manufacturers use their own cooling designs instead of the default AMD design. If they do use the AMD design, chances are they will run hotter.
A few cards with custom coolers:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... << Three fans must be good, I can't imagine this would ever have temperature problems

Look up reviews, that is the only way.
BTW, those are definitely not the only choices. I just looked for some on newegg with custom coolers. Check newegg for more, I didn't list the all.

With some of those at $220, I wouldn't be buying a 6870.

6870 gets 434 fps in Guru3D's game test suite, 560 Ti (900Mhz) gets 495 fps(+14.1%)
Twin 6870's get 701 fps in Guru3D's game test suite, twin 560 Ti's (900Mhz) get 862 fps (+23.0%)

EVGA SuperClockedGTX 560 Ti 1GB w/ 10 year warranty ($220)

The 900 Mhz versions come with better coolers than the reference cards
