I don't see a chimney on your house, so you may only be able to use a High Efficiency style furnace because of the venting.

I never deal with Amana, nor have I worked on very many of them, but they had a bad reputation for a long time. I think they are past that now.

Out of your brands, all I can say is be sure to choose something that isn't dealer only, and is well supported by the whole sale stores in your area. I don't know your area. Meaning, if you have a problem, you can call any HVAC guy and they can get parts. Most all of them have long warranty's on the heat exchangers anymore. I've had pretty good luck with Payne (Bryant rebadged for non-Bryant dealers). The other brand I like is Rheem, and Trane (although Trane can be kinda pricey, it's pretty good equipment).

I can't comment much on the pricing, it's very relevant to the install, duct work, venting, blah blah blah.
