I'm choosing a GTX570 now, among Gigabyte N570 Super Clock @845MHz, MSI Twin Frozr III PE @770MHz and Asus DCII @ 742MHz.

I plan to OC it myself so stock speed is less relevant yet Gigabyte's 845MHz is kinda nice already, meanwhile MSI's TFIII get a relatively good reputation about its cooling and overclockability. So I'm basically choosing from this two. Gigabyte's Super Clock is quite new so there aren't many reviews.

So give me some advice on these two, thank you very much!

If you are going to overclock it yourself anyway, and you just said "speed is irrelevant", buy the best. Buy EVGA.

WAT! There is no internet to order online around your place? How are you on Tom's?

Sarcasm aside, I'm partial to Gigabyte's products. I've owned a few now and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again. I have however been burned by ASUS, so I try to avoid them. My problem was with a motherboard, but I hear they make good graphics cards.

Grab the Gigabyte. They've already determined these cards to be superior builds. You won't even have to OC it yourself and you'll maintain your warranty. That's a great factory OC.

The key is whether Gigabyte N570SO can maintain its 845MHz stock core speed without compromising its stock voltage, temp and noise. If it gets 845MHz at a relatively high stock core voltage and temp then it's no difference from a user clocked card. There are quite few feedback on this card by far.

Also do I lose my warranty if I overclocked it? I think its when you damage it by overclocking it that you void your warranty.

I don't think any company would maintain a warranty agreement with a customer if they overclock the GPU. You can view the warranty on their web site for your area of the world.

It wouldn't make sense to me that any company would be obligated to warrant something that were overclocked or overvolted unless otherwise noted.

You will lose your warranty unless its factory overclocked. If you overclock and at a point if it gets damaged, then you can't send it for repairs.

Well, Graphics Card is not easy to be damaged anyway, just like CPU. And I wonder if they could tell a manually overclocked damage :kaola:  Also what's the point of including a tuning softerware like OC Guru or MSI Afterburner then?

I did check their website
Warranty Graphics Card: Please contact the location where the original order was placed.
Warranty Terms Graphics Card: Please contact the location where the original order was placed

Gigabyte does have this super clock series on theri Nvidia/ATI cards including models like GTX580 and HD6870.

This series seems to be their top notch.

As the others said, I too recommend the Gigabyte's model of the GTX 570.

It looks like they make you login to see any real warranty info.

Either way, I'd choose that Gigabyte card.
