I'm in the process of choosing parts for a new computer and have settled on the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 ti. Which of the many manufacturers do you all recommend? Are the EVGA cards okay? I'm looking for stability and fewest problems! Thanks

Basically it is all preference but good brands are as follows - they offer great warranties and have very positive feedback.

EVGA
ASUS
MSI

I don't know about EVGA, but Asus and MSI are good. I'm using MSI card, myself (OC version). If I didn't get the MSI version, I'd go for Asus one. However, I've heard that EVGA is good, too!

As an MSI user, I can say that the card runs great, maxing out every game out there @1080p (even Crysis 2 with new high-res pack and DX11), runs cool (38C idle, 70C full load, but that will be probably much lower for you, since I live in a hot country) and the MSI Afterburner software is great - all kinds of OC, fan tuning and monitoring.

P.S. You might also want to check this article Tom's did for GTX 560 Ti.

I am currently running an ASUS GTX 560Ti and it overclocks like crazy with MSI afterburner. I have not had one issue with this ASUS card. I have also used EVGA cards in the past and had no issues as well. My brother in law will only get MSI cards and lives by them.

With those 3 options, you should have a good variety.

MSI, ASUS have nice cards and good warranty support, EVGA makes fine cards with good warranty support, GIGABYTE is also fine.

Thanks all! Yes, a good variety with those three, almost too many :)  In one iteration I had the:

EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

And in another:

MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II Golden Edition GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (currently out of stock at Newegg)

I don't think I want the OC versions as any OC'g I do will be minimal. As you can tell I know very little about the differences.

GOLDEN EDITION !!!!!! It's the best version of 560Ti, but it's pretty expensive and if memory serves me well, for that money you can get a GTX570 and for sure a faster HD6950 *faster than 560Ti not 570*.

Go for the MSI NGTX-560Ti OC. It's OC'd nicely (higher than some OC's I've seen people do by themselves), performs well and has a reasonable price tag of $250 on average.
