Which Geforce GTX 560ti Really Shines

I'm looking for a Geforce GTX 560ti, I've been leaning towards two that I like. The first is the Evga GTX 560 Ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The second is the PNY GTX 560 Ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I've had good experience with both companies in the past, but Evga's rebate process is crazy slow. I was actually considering the Radeon HD 6950 just for the eyefinity but since I don't have the money for an Eyefinity setup anyway, Cuda, Phys-X and Nvidia driver support won me over. I'm looking for a little feed back from GTX 560 owners on which brand is actually best. Keep in mind I do plan on SLI in the near future.

Asus P6T6 WS Revolution
Corsair 800D
Corsair XMS3 DDR3- 12gb
Corsair H70
Intel 920 D0 (modest OC of 3.4Ghz to start)
Seasonic X750

I'll probably pick up a decent DVD rom tomorrow. Either a Sony, Samsung or Lite-on for the time being and get a blue-ray burner later on.
Thank Team Tom's

I would take the EVGA out of those, their rebate process might be slow but they have about the best customer support in the business.

My Palit Sonics have been rock solid for the four months that I've had them and a lot of that time has been spent folding 24/7.

So the Sonic is clocked higher and one comes with 2gb of memory. I guess the only benefits to be gained from the extra memory would be with dual monitor setup and resolutions over 1920 x 1200. I've always been somewhat leery of the dual fan setups in sli for some reason. More fans mean better cooling but more db.

Here is something of interest. The Palit Sonic GTX 560 @1ghz in SLI is only 15.5 FPS slower than 2 GTX 580's in SLI in Metro 2033 @1920x1200 but in 1680x1050 there is a very noticeable advantage to the GTX 580 by 27.667. Both test done @ 4 X msaa / 16 X af

I reccomend the MSI GTX 560 Twin Frozr 3 Hawk Edition. It is a very awesome card full of win. If you can bare the noise you will love this card. The card runs at low temperatures and will handle every game for the next 2 years. IMO

Is it really that noticeable"JJ"? Because I do want to SLI down the road.

Ok the MSI 560TI ^ is quite loud, but because it runs so cool the overclocking capabilities are great. It is a nice looking card two, the perfomance of this card matches a reference 570.

Two of these will obliterate everything. your looking at $250-$300 each.

Of the 2 you listed I would go the EVGA card.

Just incase you missed Toms roundup:

Asus’ GTX560 Ti DirectCU II gets the nod. Unless your gaming at larger resolutions the extra $ for the 2GB models probably isn't worth it.
