Default batteries, exide gc4 vs duracell egc2

New to golf carts and the one that I got has all six batteries dead. My first thought was just to put some optimas in it that are 12v and be done with it. Through some reading it looks like that is not a/the best option.
So called to the places around the area that sell batteries and found the best bang for the buck looks like sams clubs duracell EGC2. However the ones that are in the cart ar exide GC4. I cant find any information on the exide battery that would be useful to compare it to the duracell. Does anyone have any knowledge about if they will work or not? It seems that my cart will be on the heavier end of what golf carts are. (its a viking mini ambulance).
Any help would be great before I go poor some money into this (i never knew that these batteries were so expensive sheesh.)

thanks

From what I have seen the Duracells are OK. it's all in what you plan to do, how long you run it etc. if you use the search feature on the site, you can pull up all the battery threads and read thru. There is a ton of info on there that will help you. What I have done before is just picked up a good used set to test out the cart with and get the shake down part of it done. then once I know everything is OK I pick up new ones. it also makes it affordable if you have a cart you don't know anything about. that way you can put money at the parts that are broke, and doesn't break you.

Hope that helps.

thanks for the info. I have looked for a used set but cant find anything. May try to make a run down to the "local" golf cart place on monday and see what I can come up with.
I did do a search but I cant find any informattion on the exide gc4 batteries, here or online. I can the information on the sams club website for te egc2 batteries though. I guess my concern is if they will be about the same or if the gc4 series was a larger, more powerfull battery?

Here is the info on the duracell type that I can find.
The cart is pretty heavy with all the gear etc on, and in theory could have up to 3-4 people on it as well. my fear is spending the money on the batteries only to find that I dont have enough power or that it runs out to fast.
