Alright so Simple question. Which Graphics card to purchase?

The super clocked version of the 560 ti by EVGA

or...

The Twin frozr 2 version by msi

Ive heard that when you overclock the twin frozr it performs at the same performance as the gtx 570 at stock speed, is this true?

I'm assuming you'd be able to overclock both of them equally since they have the dual fan and heat sync to keep it nice and cool.

i own gtx 560 ti twin frozr ii/oc and its cool :)  am happy
i heard that EVGA has good customer serves but the twin frozr ii are perfect choice for overclocking that any card !! also the ASUS gts 560 ti direct CU are incredible and pre-overclocked. .. it wasn't available when i got may card

I think i might just get the EVGA because of the 10 year warranty that comes with it, and also its pre clocked at 900MHz so thats pretty darn good. Probably not even going to overclock it at all unless i need to if i get multiple monitors. but as of now im only running one monitor at 1280 x 1024 resolution.

I agree.

I also like the EVGA cooler more. It looks to me that the msi unit has a very restrictive exot grille for the hot air.

Graphics vendors bin their chips, and overclock the best ones to sell at a higher price. To me, a small overclock is not much worth it.
It is a small enough premium to get a superclocked card.

Same here The colour will go great with my case since its a dark grey with yellow-green fans, just like the EVGA card. So it will be a nice addition to my rig. I also plan on buying another one to run SLI maybe 4 or 5 months down the road.
