Antiviral meds - is one better than the next at supression

There are 3 antiviral meds for herpes:
acyclovir (generic) also known as Zovirax
Valtrex (valacyclovir)
famciclovir (generic) also known as Famvir

Any informed opinions. I know acyclovir is the oldest and I saw some impressive statistics on it's suppression abilities. Obviously the two generic drugs will be much less expensive than Valtrex.
