Flashes for a Nikon D5100? Yongnuo?

What is a good flash for the Nikon D5100 that can be off the camera? I've been looking and have seen the Yongnuo's recommended for beginners (that's me pretty much).  I've found the following are compatible, but not sure which is really the best for the D5100 as I know it has some limited capacity in regards to flashes.  I'm wanting a flash for portraits and some grow into skills.

Yongnuo YN560II

Yongnuo YN565ex

Yongnuo YN468II

I've looked at the actual Nikon 700 and 910 flashes, but they seem expensive for what the D5100 is able to do compared to other Nikons and I'm not ready to switch Nikon body's yet.  Totally open to other suggestions, just that the yongnuo is what kept coming up on searches.

Thanks!
