Hey guys,
Im going to Upgrade my graphics card to a GTX 560 Ti, BUT I don't know what to get
Which wil be a better card?
The ASUS Nvidia GeForce GTX560Ti 1GB 256-bit GDDR5

OR

MSI GeForce GTX560Ti Twin Frozr II OC 1GB GDDR5

I live in South Africa and i can get them both quiet cheap.
Im also running a ASUS motherboard, so maybe the performance wil be better?
Thx
Paul Theron

What are your full system specs?(CPU/RAM/Mobo,etc.)

I'd say go with the MSI GTX560ti because of the cooling solution but if the Asus GTX560ti is the DirectCU version than we will have to look up some benchmarks.

Yes its the DirectCU version indeed
here are my specs

CPU: Intel i5 @ 3.2ghz
RAM: Corsair DDR3 4GB 1800ghz
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 Motherboard
PSU: Coolermaster 750 watt
HDD: WesternDigital 1TB x2
DVD: Samsung dvd drive

Yeah thats about it

Ok so according to these benchmarks the MSI Twin Frozr II O.C.'s just a little better (20mhz) than the Asus Direct CU.Also the MSI beat the Asus by 12c in cooling.

I'd say it's safe to say the MSI GTX560ti is the better card, mostly for cooling.
