GTX560 Ti Twin Frozr II vs. Gigabyte 6950 1GB

I am building a new computer soon, and im stuck between the MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II 1GB and the Gigabyte 6950 1GB. They are both the same price and are both overclocked stock. Which is a better card? Which will be better for future SLI/Crossover?

Edit: This will be running on a 2500k with an ASROCK z68 extreme3 motherboard. I'll be playing on a 1920x1080 monitor. My PSU is a coolermaster silent pro 850w, so it should handle a pair of there in the future fine, right? Will be using this build with battlefield 3 for the most part.

Edit 2: How would the MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk compare to these? I know it has a higher stock clock, but does that mean I could overclock higher than the twin frozr ii? Theres a $10 difference.

  1. Performance wise they are the same. I like the GTX560 ti twin Frozr because of the heatsink being very good at cooling the main chip. My opinion here is that the green banner has the advantage here ^_^.

    Hope this helps

    Edit : 850W ... OVERKILLL :P You should have went with Antec, Corsair or seasonic and 750W instead of 850W.

    Hey,when its $90 @ tigerdirect, I'll buy it even if it is overkill!
  3. Honestly, wait a day or two or three for BF3 Beta benchmarks to arrive. See which company it favours more since the 560 Ti and 6950 are about equal in most games on average.
  4. I usually stick with nvidia for the physx games that use it.
    And I'm using 3D Vision too... usually I think AMD cards give u more performance for the buck, but Nvidia gives u more value for the buck (physx + 3d vision are truly nice years tested addons)
  5. go MSI
    the gigabyte GPUs have bad reliablility and cooling
    also the 560 Ti is an EXTREME overclocker
    With the twin frozr heatsink you could get fairly close to if not above 1GHz on the Core
  6. about the hawk vs twin frozr
    not really the hawk has a Twin Frozr III design witch features more heapipes the the Twin frozr II will provide adequeate cooling until you reach over 1GHz
