Hi,

I am building my first rig. I am not able to decide on buying stock 560 ti card or one factory OCed one. There are many driver, crash, artefacting, freeze issues with the OCed cards and this is what got me thinking about it.

I was considering MSI 560 ti hawk.

I will be building my rig this week and want your advice on this.

Thank you.

just get the stock one if its cheaper .just do it yourself its hard to screw up. if you want to overclock safely dont play with the voltage .

make sure to do some research into how easy that particular brand of card is to OC. A good example is EVGA. They have decent price, lifetime warranty, but you can't OC them at all pretty much due to the way they're built.

The issues posted in different forums worried me. Will the nvidia drivers issued for the card work with MSI560 Ti Hawk or are there some other drivers issued for these (kind of noob in this matter)?

I am from india and here price for ATI 6950 1 GB(stock) and Hawk are same. I am looking to sli/crossfire it in one year in a different rig. Keeping this in mind what will be a better option.?

I wanted to go with hawk because its protected by warranty and there is not much difference in price compared to stock.

Thank you.

Get it stock, you can overclock your self with MSI afterburner and its as easy as moving a level. Dont waste the money :D
