The two are the same in price now, but the EVGA retail price is much higher than the MSI's. The EVGA also requires a mail-in rebate to match the MSI price. Which one is better? Also what kind of performance can I expect from a GTX 570?
the above graph is outdated
that is from the beta, performance of BF3 has been optimized a good deal since then, Id say a gtx 570 with a nice oc on it can run BF3 on high/ultra at 1080p with low or no AA @ mostly 60+fps
its not going to max the game out with every setting and detail but will certainly do just fine, shoot even my gtx 560ti SLi setup cannot max everything with 60+fps, but with a setting or two dialed down I am easily achieving high competitive frame rates
