You can find the top rated brands on this site here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/ac_ratings.html. Generally I would say that Trane, Carrier, Rheem and a few others tend to be reliable, efficient and get the job done.
I would add that the difference between comparable models is rarely very large. I would look at features and warranties to distinguish between brands and models. Also, the installation is where the money hits the road. A good install will guarantee that you achieve full efficiency and reliability.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
