I would save up an extra few $ and grab a 3850 or 9600GT to make the upgrade be worth it. What about the 9600 in review units sale thread?

There are many good choices now at that price area.
I assume you need a card for a pci-e slot ? The last 2 cards on your list didn't say what they were...

If you can wait for the $30 mail in rebate to come back.

Another suggestion might be to try the buy/sell/trade forum and post a 'WTB' (want to buy) message with your available funds.

There are probably members that have cards just sitting around waiting to be sold cheap
