MSI 6870 TFII/TFIII vs. Gigabyte GTX560Ti OC/MSI GTX 560Ti TFII

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there!

I thought to put this thread here because here isn't the "home thread" of neither brand

So, I'm looking for silent and good graphics card for my new rig that I will put together in the near future. I have been looking at those 4 cards in the title, and at a fifth card: Gigabyte's GTX460 SOC. Yeah I know it doesn't really wrestle in the same league, but it is cheap and powerful enough to my needs (I don't game alot nor do any kind of video work/rendering/whatever). But if ranked by performance, would it be 460 - 6870 - 560Ti (560Ti as first)?

Which one of these would be the best pick? I'm pretty sure that all of these are a safe bet, but which of these would run the quitest and coolest?

Sorry if this thread was a bit of a mess and unclear, please help me and ask if something was a bit unclear

Thanks alot for you all!!

I'd like to go for GIGABYTE's 560Ti OC/SOC, cause it has a windforce cooler with inclined fins and Ultra Durable materials, if the version is SOC, you can get a specific overclock software called OC Guru, and the most important is that it can auto control the power consumption when in different situations.

I did get the 6870. Msi's power management seems prestine.
560 Ti was more expensive, but the main subject I overruled it was its consumption. Still, you will have the better card if you overclock that one.
