Default Which card to buy?

I am updating my system and need some help on a card to buy. My money is limited but I need to upgrade from my 7800gtx

I do not have the money to buy a i7 system so I will be buying a quad core with a cheap motherboard. Maybe the Q9550.

I have listed the potential cards:

XFX ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 2048MB 289

BFG GeForce GTX 285 OC 1024MB 279

EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 55nm 187

BFG GeForce GTX 295 1792MB 379

I will not be upgrading my pc for a fair bit of time. The GTX 295 is the most expensive and will clear me out of money but if its considered the best bet ill get it. The GTX 260 is a fair bit cheaper but im not sure if saving 100 is clever for long run.

I run off a tv which is 1920x1200. I like high quality for my graphics but I do not really care about AA (can not really tell difference).

The games I play are: BF2, Cryostatis, Burnout and I would like to play Crysis.

many thanks
