Also what would be the difference between the GTX 560Ti and 560GTX-Ti Hawk?
so my understanding of current nvidia cards, for gtx 560 ti you have
1. reference nvidia GTX 560 ti - default clocks 822mhz gpu core, 4008mhz memory.
2. factory overclocked versions with upgraded cooling solutions, allowing for even further overclocking headroom at home, example MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB comes clocked at 950mhz on gpu core and 4200mhz on the memory. im sure would be quite easy to clock the gpu @ 1050mhz (or 1.05ghz) that would be almost 28% increase on the nvidia reference model
might depend on whether you want/need internal or external exhausting model
in my case i have 2 x GTX 460 (SLI), both can easily clock to 910mhz (34% increase over the nvidia reference 675mhz)
from what i have seen the the best performing & coolest running cards will have a 2 fan cooling solution, see these 2 examples (both are handsome cards in terms of performance). both come factory overclocked - evga @ 850, msi @ 950)
