Default Which vid card should I get

I have been shopping for a video card lately and i am unsure which way to go.

Here are my choices:
RADEON 9500 PRO 128M
ATI Radeon 9600 PRO 128MB DDR
Sapphire RADEON 9600 PRO ATLANTIS ULTIMATE 128
Radeon 9700NP 128MB DDR
ATI RADEON 9800SE 128MB

All are right arround $200, and I would like to stay at that price range.

Which would give me the best bang for my buck?

Thanx in advance.

I just read a review where they took a 9500 Pro and a 9600 Pro and overclocked them. They ranked the just under or in some cases better than the 9700 Pro without overclocking the 9700.

So I dont think i will go with the 9700 NP.

Still up in the air about the 9800se though.
