Buying a GPU, Which is better

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?

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 kinda at the same price, so I need to buy something cheapish but stil with good performance, and im also buying a new case, CM Storm Enforcer case.

Im also running a ASUS motherboard, so maybe the performance wil be better?
Thx

  1. I say go with the MSI GTX 560 Ti, its proven to be 20c lower than reference, and I'm sure some crazy overclocking could be done on it.
  2. Hmm yeah, i just thought about it and they basically have the same cooling, and its in my price range, the ASUS one that is!
    But thank you for replying so fast! Much appreciated!
  3. i will be getting my pc in about some days and i want a graphics card(ati or nvidia) that have directx 11 and my budget is between 100$to 125$......i would lay games not on high but med....my games will be
    nfs hot pursuit 2010
    crysis 2
    fifa 11 and upcoming 12
    upcoming battlefield 3......just tell me whats the best......i will take moniter that supports the graphics card...or will the 5770 be best???
  4. Off the cuff, I'd buy the cheapest 900 MHz card you can buy as all of the major vendors provide coolers that are substantially better than the reference card. However, I must say, that I have had the most luck OC'ing further (1000 MHz) w/ the Asus card .... it's the only one I have gotten to 1000 w/o a voltage increase.

  7. it all depends on what you mean by better as the performance will be nearly identical to each other but both have different traits. I have just recently bought a gtx 570 and the 560ti isnt much worse so you will be pleased by what can be acheived! what psu and CPU have you got?
