Price being equal, which would you get?

XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

EVGA 256-P2-N761-AR GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail

EVGA 256-P2-N624-AR GeForce 7900GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 KO Video Card - Retail

Two are ~$130, one's a little more. Is a 256-bit memory interface really all that? And aren't the 8600s a little better with power consumption? I'll probably do SLI, but not for quite awhile.

What would you do?
