That's great, looks like I've done well with my two choices then. Both TFIII.

What are the differences between the GTX 560Ti Frozr II OC and the Frozr III Hawk? All I can see is a higher clock speed and a £20 extra price tag.

Twin Frozr III Hawk has a better cooler and should run quieter as well.

Okay.

Well, I think I'm set on this:
MSI GTX 560Ti Twin Frozr III HAWK

If there's any specific problems with the card or the retailer please do let me know . I have a bit of saving to do for this card still.

In the end I decided that a 570 would be just too expensive for me right now, and probably some complications for my case. I want to play it easy and get a 560Ti. Are they good for SLI? As I may choose to do so in the future.

not a bad choice really, should be a cracking overclocker!

2x560ti in sli is a great choice if you're on a budget. even a pair of them right now are cheaper than a single 580, let alone if you're grabbing the second one down the road.

as far as performance of sli goes, raw rendering power 2x560ti beats a single 580, but like i said earlier, the 1 gb of vram will still be your achillies' heel when you wanna game on high aa/af.

having said that i don't really notice that much difference when i use 2xaa and 8xaa, lol. have fun with your 560ti(s)!

The best 570 in my honest opinion is the MSI TF3 Power Edition.

Non reference design, overclocks very well and runs very cool. I've had great experiences with MSI products and I will probably only buy their brand from now on.

here's a couple of reviews [1] [2] on 560ti sli scaling, they all point to a rough 1.5-1.6 average scaling at 1920x1200 res, not as impressive as amd's xfire with their 68x0 and 69x0 cards, but it's a respectable gain nonetheless. hope it helps!

You can also flash the bios of a 6950 to a 6970 which is even more bang for your buck
