  1. For your resolution the GTX560ti is plenty but as new games come out eventually it is going to start hurting before the GTX570.
  2. So which of the two would you recommend?

    I am looking for best price per performance but also want it to last a long time before my next upgrade.
  3. The SOC has a nice overclock that places its performance very close to the GTX 570. The MSI 570 Twin Frozr has a relatively small overclock. So at stock speeds, both are similar in performance, with the 570 running a little faster. Of course, if you plan to overclock, the MSI 570 Twin Frozr III has more headroom than the 560 SOC, so it has much more high-end potential. Either will meet all your gaming needs and both have very quiet and cool heatsinks.
  4. For the money the GTX560Ti!
  5. Thanks guys, made up my mind :D
