Are these decent GPU options for my new rig?

As I am trying to decide on the last few parts to get for the new computer I intend to make, I cannot decide on a GPU, or figure out what is best for the parts I have so far.

Currently this is the setup: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pjzt

I have not decided on a harddrive yet and another factor which might make this decision more difficult is the fact that my GF is buying my a new monitor for the holidays and I do not know what it is, but Im thinking she got a pretty decent one so Im assuming a moderate to high resolution.

Here are a few GPUs Ive picked out, are these ok or should I be looking in a different direction?

Edit: I forgot to add that I currently have a Nvidia 9800 GTX+ 512mb so there are alot of things out there that are upgrades for me :X

More about decent options
  1. Best answer
    The best choice will be a 7870 ghz edition, the best card of those 3, and overall will be the best card price performance on that site.
    Just a note : i recommend changing the case and psu for a corsair carbide 400r and a corsair tx650w, nothing wrong with those parts, but at the same price after rebates its really better.

    Yea people seem to be a fan of that one, I like how that sounds too. If there are any other viable and economical options that arent on that list feel free to add some other options!
  3. I made the change that i recommended see this :
