1) Buy a gigabyte 560 Ti super over-clock series if you can get one in stock for under $270
2) Buy the MSI 570 OC (I just bought it) for $309 before MIR of $20

The 570 is pretty damn sweet and will offer improved performance in bandwith limited games & tessellation due to having more physical hardware than the 560. But, the 560 SOC (if you find one in stock) gives you full warranty at 1000Mzh core shader and fps that are close to a stock 570 and saves you $30-40.

Unless you don't want/need the performance boost of the 570 over the 560, go with the 570 imo. I'm super happy.

The fan profile [for the 570] is a little stupid, but that's for acoustic reasons.

@ 85 C it only spins at 60% which is audible, but not annoying or too loud. This card loves to run between 85C with an ambient around 20C in a case with good airflow. Still,the fan will break 60% when your temp increases past 85C to keep it under 85. Very very quite at idle and low loads.

I believe 85° is too much for a stock 570gtx , especially if it is a Twin Frozr model.

The problem that I see with these cards that are super overclocked to the extreme is that there is a lot of stress on the gpu , so I think it would shorten the life of the gpu. I would rather go with the card that is manufactured to be a better performing card and is not totaly stressed out. It will last a lot longer , so the deal you got with the 570 is a good one and I would also go with it.

Gpu's tend to have a higher thermal threshold than a cpu , you can have a gpu up to 120c and be ok.

I agree that the thermal threshold of a gpu is higher than a cpu, though i have seen in articles that the temps of a gtx570 are lower than that.

http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-570-review/9

The above lists a temp under heavy load of a gtx570 at 77° and that is a reference model. The msi cooler should be significantly lower.

The op lists an average temp of 85°, that is why i made that comment.

With the release of the new 560/570 in the next few days we might see prices come down on both that might change ones opinion of which one to buy.

There is also a 570 for 269.99 after rebate as well on newegg. Not sure of the quality of it though, Galaxy brand. Never used them before. I STILL dont think any of these are tied to the new card coming in. I really dont. I think they are just black friday//early cyber Monday stuff. I still think it will be :

560ti = 220-240 bucks
560ti 448 = 260-290 bucks
570 = 299-340 bucks
