The first three solvers should always outperform smoothSolver. GAMG should outperform CG methods when not limited by communication (this is especially true for the pressure equation). If you're in doubt, just run a couple fixed timesteps with each of the solvers and you will very quickly find out where you can save time.

As akidess already said, for p a good choice should be GAMG, for other fields I usually use PBiCG.
BICCG shouldn't be used any more:
