Default 8800 GTS 320: Sparkle vs eVGA vs BFG vs XFX

So after reading up on the GeForce 8800 GTS, i've decided to get the 320MB version over the 640MB because it's cheaper and performance is about the same. Plus there are rumors of nVIDIA dropping the 640MB version in spring when the 8600 series comes out.

So my delima is what manufacturer of card to choose from.
Here are my choices. If any of you have had experience with any of these manufacturers before let me know good or bad.

XFX GeForce 8800 GTS - $358.04 (after $22.00 MIR)
BFG GeForce 8800 GTS - $404.17
eVGA GeForce 8800 GTS - $359.99 (after $20.00 MIR)
Sparkle GeForce 8800 GTS - $396.27

I got the prices from NCIX as this is where I will be getting the card from.

Next Build: E5200 @ 3.6GHz (333x11) | Xigmatek HDT-RS1283 HSF | Biostar TP43D2-A7 | Mushkin Redlines DDR2-1000 @ DDR2-999 5-5-5-12
EVGA 9600 GT 512MB - 650MHz - 1800MHz - 1626MHz | Seagate 'Cuda 250GB 7200rpm SATA2 | Corsair VX550 | CM690 - Custom Atomic Orange Pearl
