I heard that the wieght of DCUII may strain the mobo and maybe the card itself? true? Also, please vote in da poll!
And th einternal exhaust causes case heat :S
Also note that there is an ERROR in the poll; the MSI Twin Frozr II is the /OC version.
Pls help as I will order in next 24 hrs.

It takes up 3 slots, but it also uses 3 screws to secure itself to the case, as opposed to the 2 screws dual slot cards use.

(That, and there exists heavier dual-slot cards with copper heatsinks that do fine too. GTX465GE, anyone?)

So what card is the winner? Remember I prefer durability over ANYTHING else.

Well I dunno about the Twin Frozn on the 570 but on the 470 the Windforce was better in terms of cooling and noise.

I'd go with the Asus just to make sure you get the better VRM.
