the safest way to go because the card comes over clocked by the manufacturer so if anything was to go wrong it can be rma'ed wit no problem.
keep in mind this card is up and around 500 dollars. i can build a semi decent rig with that amount of money

the differences are really insignificant. i mean theres minor things like cooling, and default clock rates but when it comes down to it, they're all using the same chip that are capable of running at the same speeds.
id guess that the more expensive cards come with a more "efficient" and reliable setup. i like to go behind the theory of "you get what you paid for".
but when it comes down in the end. all the cards run around that same price range. from 350-400 dollars.
oh and i was wrong when i said the bfg was 500. i thought they would tremendelously overprice it because they advertised it as "overclocked" but i guess not. sorry about that.
so yes. dont worry too much about getting cheated out of performance. worry about getting cheated about quality. who wants a kick [bleep] card that overheats all the time?
