Windows for new house

We're in the process of building a new house in central Mississippi, and we are ready to buy windows. I've researched and read reviews until I am blue in the face. I need your help! I have 12 clad windows and 9 vinyl windows (clad on front and back of house; vinyl on sides and upstairs). I've gotten quotes for Marvin, Quaker, Jeld-Wen, and Windsor clad windows and Ply-gem, Quaker, Jeld-Wen, and Alenco vinyl windows. I'd love to go with Marvin because they seem to be the only mfgr. that consistently gets good reviews, but they are just too expensive. What are your thoughts on Quaker Brighton series, Jeld-Wen Siteline EX, and Windsor clad windows? Thoughts on the vinyl brands also?

Personally if you cannot go with the Marvin windows I would probably choose the Plygems as I have been told there higher end products are pretty good while I will say I have heard nothing very good about the rest of the brands you mention. There will be others on here who will give their advice who are more familiar with the vinyl products but this is my opinion.

What do you want the windows to look like? Do you need the wood interior?
