    i was wondering if it's worth buying about 355,66USD / 247,41Eur for the MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk when u can get the Asus ENGTX560 TI DCII TOP/2DI/1GD5 for 321,20USD / 223,70Eur?

    yes i got a MSI N460GTX HAWK atm ino that, but i am just wondering and ino Asus only has 900mhz core while the MSI HAWK has 950mhz and since i can't afford a brand-new GTX570 and used GTX570 goes for around 240~260eur / 344~373USD @ ebay.de

    In this case, i think ASUS is a better choice. 24 EUR for just 50MHz extra on GPU. Nah. Coolers are pretty much the same, you can overclock it yourself and spend those extra 24 EUR you just saved for something else. If the clocks were seriously higher on GPU and memory, then yes, but in this case i think ASUS is a better choice.

    Had similar dilema myself between regular HD6870 and pre-overclocked one. Difference was around 15 or 20 EUR but the GPU had extra 70MHz and memory extra 400MHz. Plus the cooler is using Vapor-X so i think it was a good choice, especially since it's pretty much as fast as HD6950 right out of the box. But the HD6950 costs even more.

    Are there any specific extras in each case like free games or software, extra connectivity (some vendors add free HDMI cable if you need one). Check that out as well and then decide. But personally i'd go with ASUS in this case.

    RejZor they both has mini-hdmi so there will be a convertor to normal hdmi with it, and i got a HDMI 1.3 cable i use so i am good with convertor ^^;

    but i will see if i can get a EVGA or not Ref. of the GTX570 on ebuy if i can't i think i will go GTX560-Ti ^^;

    I'd go with MSI one, since I love that Twin Froz cooler \m/. But for the price, Asus GTX560 Ti DC Top is a better choice indeed

    But if you look at it, ASUS cooler is pretty much the same. Except it has direct touch heatpipe.
