Default Head Gasket

I may need to replace the Head Gasket on my 2005 v6. I'll drop the vehicle to mechanic mid-week for diagnostics.
In a meantime I just went and check what is on the market for Head Gaskets.

- Toyota sells them for $94 each or overhaul kit for $318
- Fel-Pro has improved design Gasket for $38 or Kit for $175
- Apex sells Gaskets for $39 each or Kit for $
- ITM Engine Components has $49 for Gasket or $146 for
- Mahl Original/Victor Reinz is the most expensive for $61 per Gasket or $195 for Kit.

I'm not much aware of those brands. Could anyone share his/her opinion on them and recommend which one is better then the others?
