Which GTX 560 is better?

I'm building my computer in about a month and unless the GTX 560 ti goes down to $200 in that time, I'm pretty sure I want to get the 560 non ti. I'm just trying to decide which one to get based on how good it would be after overclocking.

EVGA GTX 560 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130661

MSI GTX 560 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127592

The MSI one is dual fan which would lead me to believe it'd be cooler and would be better at overclocking, but the EVGA one at stock has slightly higher clock speeds. Also something to keep in mind is that the EVGA one is $10 cheaper after the rebate.

I'm also open to other suggestions of Nvidia cards in the same price range. It's going to be running with an i3 2120 and I want to be able to play most games in 1080p at maybe not ultra but atleast high settings.

More about which better
  1. Msi cooler looks better but if you don't plan in overclock it go with EVGA because of higher stock clock.
  2. my vote goes to MSi.they have the best cooling IMO,evga has best customer service but MSi isn't that bad.i would say go with MSi and give it a good overclock.
  3. Yea the GTX 560 ti's should be coming down to well below 200$. Since the rest of NVIDIA's new Successor to Fermi (GTX 560) is expected to be out end of April or beggining of may
  4. i wouldn't buy anything from evga that has the "KR" in front of it.
  5. I own 2 of the msi cards...they run fine but top card can run 10c hotter if fans not are going. It will OC just fine. I'd hold off till you can get em for 150.00. That is how much I got mine for on sale/mir.
