It's the best non-reference design with an amazing aftermarket cooler and has features (as well as its build quality) just fully ready to be OC'd. You can easily get it to the levels of a GTX 580.
I understand MSI is awesome but I'm trying to uniquely distinguish our computers apart from each other. Im building new computers for the whole family, that's 4 new high end computers and Im rebuilding one for my grandmother and I've already used Asus and MSI in the builds.

Also, the 570 by itself should have no problems with power and temps as previously mentioned but I would be concerned about 560 sli if the case is cramped and/or the cooling is not adequate.

He's getting the "Thermaltake Chaser" full tower: LINK

and please don't suggest getting a GTX580 because quite frankly I'd probably swap my two 560s for that one 580

Hmmm, based on personal experiences, I'd definitely say EVGA has amazing warranty and aftersales customer support if that counts for you

If you want to save money get some GTX 460's or 465's. Clock for clock the gtx 560 isn't much faster than the 460. Especially when 460's are stupid cheap right now.

just keep the price of your gpu below $250 mark because after that the performance for dollar you get is significantly diminished.

blah, really minecraft... why do you need a 580? hell, get 2 460's for $250 and get 580 performance! Talk about overkill... i bet 1 460 would blow away your brother, and spend the money you save on an SSD so his entire system feels snappier...

Really this.

Buying a 560 @ $200 is a waste over the dirt cheap 460s. They have the same basic architecture, all you're really paying for is slightly higher OC headroom.

If he's not that into gaming I think one of these would probably suffice. A 30MHz OC on the core will give identical performance to a stock 560.

SLI 460's.

Get them on sale for the price of a single 570, and get slightly higher than 580 performance.

Don't really need to say much else.

I know how good one GTX460 Is but two? How is the scaling on them and are they really as good as or better than a 580?

If anyone has any scaling proof I'd like to see it, because if this is true that would save me some good money.

Read above your post.

There's evidence everywhere too, I'm just too lazy to link it right now, haha.
