How much shooting experience does your wife have?  If she an avid hunter I think any of the variables you listed would be fine.  If she's just starting out, I think a fixed power in something like 4x or 6x might be a good option, less things to think about when the shot presents itself, which builds confidence.  Come to think of it, a fixed power is chosen by some of the most respected hunters in the buisiness.

The three you listed are very decent for the money, though I think the viper is probably the best optically, I had a SII some years back and I thought it also was very nice. Tuff descisions are what makes it fun.

If it were me, I would go with a 3-9x in the same price range which will give you a step up in glass quality.  Glass quality will always trump magnification.

Look at the Bushnell 4200 3-9x for $260  http://swfa.com/Bushnell-3-9x40-Elite-4200-Rifle-Scope-P6910.aspx
Sightron S2 Bigsky  for $379 with $50 mail in rebate  http://swfa.com/Sightron-3-9x42-SII-Big-Sky-Riflescope-P9158.aspx
Vortex Viper for $329.  http://swfa.com/Vortex-3-9x40-Viper-Rifle-Scope-P10817.aspx
