Which is better GPU on overall? MSI GTX560-Ti Hawk VS Asus GTX570 DCII

Hello guys,
I would like to know which is GPU is better in term of power consumption on overload, power consumption on idle, noise on load, noise on idle, and FPS.

MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk - which has Twin Frozr 3 tech, Titanium, 1GB video memory:

Asus ENGTX570 - which has the DirectCU2 tech, 1280MB video memory:

currently my "going to buy" pc is gonna have 620watt PSU, so if I will get the Asus how much watt do i need the PSU to have?

I could find the charts for the MSI but not for the Asus GPU on TomsHardware

Thanks in advanced,

  1. Don't think you can compare them.

    Obviously the 570 will use more power, probably gets hotter and therefore and maybe a little bit more noisy, but has more fps than the 560. Like comparing a VW GTI to a Ferrari.

    Some Asus facts ;

    PSU needs 550W.

    Not exactly what you need, but first you have the GTX 560 versions compared above, both the DirectCU and the Hawk. This will give you a fair idea of how the cooler works and the custom differences between the two cards. Then you have the vanilla GTX 570 review to compare things like power consumption differences between the 560 Ti and the 570. Apparently, the reference GTX 570 and the MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk cost the same per year to operate in terms of power consumption.
