Default Recommendations for a new Wireless Router

Hey everyone, I recently upgraded to Shaw's Broadband 100 package which is 100 mbps down and 5 mbps up (sometime in fall up will go to 10 mbps up for free). Anyways, I noticed with my Linksys WRT160N im getting about 60 mbps down and 4.2 mbps up running speed tests. I realized that Shaw's new Docsis 3 modems are running a gig network for the ethernet. The WRT160N I have is 10/100 only. When I have the modem isolated to one PC, I get about 88-95 mbps down and 4.8 mbps up. Currently all my cables are already cat6 so im ready for a gig network at home and was wondering if anyone can recommend me a new wireless router.

I have been reading a ton of user and "professional" reviews and the ones im most interested in are:
- Netgear WNDR3700
- Linksys Expert E3200-CA
- ASUS RT-N56U Black Diamond

If anyone here has experience with the above routers, please list the pros/cons and your thoughts on it. Thanks everyone, there is so many options I just want to get the best out of my money.
