Default 4870 512MB - Best Card

I am going out of my mind - too many cards to choose

I am new to building computers, but here are the cards I was thinking of. Price has played a factor in these choices, but I do not want to get a card which is going to die!

ASUS EAH4870 DK TOP/HTDI/512MD5
Newegg.ca - ASUS EAH4870 DK TOP/HTDI/512MD5 Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

I have read some bad stuff about Asus and their current cards however, but soo cheap!

XFX HD-487A-YDDC Radeon HD 4870 XXX 512MB
Newegg.ca - XFX HD-487A-YDDC Radeon HD 4870 XXX 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Low Profile Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

People seem to really like the XFX brand, card is on sale, so fits in my budget.

HIS Hightech H487F512P Radeon HD 4870 512MB
Newegg.ca - HIS Hightech H487F512P Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

AND

HIS Hightech H487FN512P Radeon HD 4870 512MB
Newegg.ca - HIS Hightech H487FN512P Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards


I originally was going to go with Sapphire, but was talked out of it by everyone. But I feel the same reasons why I was told to stay away from Sapphire is true for ASUS (the cards I had looked at first)

Any suggestions on top of these would be welcome.

What does everyone think?

Thanks,
