MSI Twin Frozr II/OC is a great card but the Twin Frozr III came out several weeks ago, it's called the Hawk, or Hawk Twin Frozr III, It does cost $15 more too.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-578-_-Product

I've seen some people say it's louder than the TFII due to the improved fan design but others say it isn't. Regardless, everything else about it is better than the TFII. The Hawk and the superclocked EVGA share the title as highest clocked 560's meaning they have share the same core OC right out of the box, and the Hawk is the best solution for air-cooling.

Even if you don't OC you're not wasting money as the design has superb cooling and the Hawk as I stated above is clocked the same as the EVGA Superclocked card and runs cooler.

I upgraded from a 9600 GT several weeks ago to the Hawk Twin Frozr III and I'm enjoying it.

But, in the end, they're all great cards, I chose the Hawk since I knew it was going to perform excellently, stay cool, and last a long long time.

IMO you cant go wrong with either card! They both have a good reputation , And both companys make good products! With that being said i would probably buy the MSI ( just my preference)
