I have a trouble deciding which 6950 2gb I should buy - MSI Twin Fozr III or Asus Direct CU II.
It's a fact that ASUS cooling is VERY quiet, but the temps are rather average (but I'm not sure, but I've seen them in reviews).
Then there is MSI TF 3, very very cool but I've heard it's loud at high load.

So I want to know whater MSI TF3 is realy that loud? Also, is it true that ASUS has worse load temps that MSI?
And are there other things about those two cards that are important? I may want to OC a bit but not that much, I want troubleless durable card without artifacts. Also noise and temperature are very important to me.

Ok so I'm leaning towards MSI, but what about TF3 noise? I don't need absolute noise but I don't want a dryer neither.

Thanks, so MSI is a better choice than Asus? From what I see I think it is, also higher stock speeds are a big + for MSI.

Ok, low temps are very important and also MSI looks nice, so I'm going to buy msi :D  I think it will be overall better choice than 560 ti? Well 2gb ram is a big + in bf3 1080p ultra, because it uses 1,3gb or so. And 560 Ti is way more problematic from what I've heard.

I think radeons are better for bf3 and also the 6950 is slightly faster than the 560 ti already.
