Alright i am building a new PC for gaming and i am wondering what video card i should get. I already have two picked out the first one is an overclocked MSI gtx560ti 2gb and the second one is and EVGA gtx560ti 2gb that is NOT overclocked. some of my friends that have been building PC's longer then me say to go with the EVGA card just because they make a better product than MSI. I was wondering what you guys think? Also say what you think about my other specs.

I would rate MSI and EVGA about the same for video cards, myself.

The factory OCd one is kinda nice since you don't have to play around with OC settings yourself, but the other can just as easily be brought to the same level if you do it yourself so it doesn't really matter in the long run.

It isn't like it takes forever and a day to dial in a video card OC. It is nice not to have to go through the motions, but it only takes a few hours at best to sort that stuff out.
