Help, fast strong 27" tire recommendation

I am looking for a fast, but also somewhat puncture resistant front tire for a 27" rim. (rear on same bike is currently a 700x25c tire)

I currently use Continential Ultra Gatorskin 700x25c tires on all my other bikes.

From Harris Cyclery I find they sell a Conti Ultra Gator 630-32 tire.

Is this the best choice in 27" tires? I wish it was a bit narrower, closer to 25mm.

I'd pick the second one...I have the 27.125 on one wheelset and they're great.

I like these, the 27x1 1/8 is a 630x28.
(They are Panaracer Pasela Tourguards)
