Connecting AT2020 to Xonar Essence STX soundcard


I currently own a Xonar Essence STX sound card, which i use in combination with a high-end high-impedance headphone (hd650). Im looking to do some instrumental recording, and I'm thinking of purchasing a AT2020 XLR to connect to this soundcard.

I've been looking at these 3, they're at different prices here in Argentina. which one should I go for?

the aI'm is to record mainly all-round vocals and an ocassional acoustic guitar in my home studio. I've got a Mackie vlz-403 mixer with very good mic preamps and phantom.

any ideas? cheers!
