Im going to buy a new printer in the next day or 2. Im looking to buy 1 of these 3 printers. Which do you think is the best buy ?

Epson Stylus Photo R220
Epson Stylus D68

Depends on what you want it to do. But forget the D68 as the D88 is so much better for only a few pounds more.

Im just after a printer for the home. Which will print average quality print outs with the odd high quality for printing things like photos.

I know that inkjet printers dont like printing on ohp sheets. But which will be better ?

I have a D88. It will do a very good job for every day things and will produce quite acceptable photos. However if you want better quality photos then go for photo inkjet. I am quite happy with my D88.

I haven't tried OHP with the D88 but in my experience there isn't a real problem printing on the sheets but some brands don't work very well with Epson printers. Epson of course works well but is expensive.

Having the R200, I would recommend the R220 (if I'm correct the difference between rR200 and the R220 is the R220 has card reading abilities) on my R200 a really good all rounder and having six ink cartridges that what you're looking for individual cartridges. make all the diference in running costs.
