ASUS DCII 560 TI TOP or r6870 HAWK (same price)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have CF 6870 HAWKs in my system, and I love them, and right now my friend wants a similar setup. However, I recently noticed I could get an ASUS 560 TI DCII TOP for around 190 dollars new, which is around the same price as the HAWK. I might get this for my friend instead, but I'm wondering which one you guys would pick? Is the increase in performance for 560 TI worth the worser cooling and overclocking potential as well as less impressive multi-gpu scaling compared to the 6870 HAWKs?

GTX 560ti outperforms 6870 in nearly any game and scale better in sli and also good driver support from Nvidia.
You know what to do.
Edit:Try to get the asus direct cu II or msi HAWK for great a OC .

Appreciate the advice. Single GPU wise, the 560 ti definitely is better, but from the looks of many websites, 6870s seem to scale better O.o Just how good is nvidia driver support compared to ATI's? Never really had an experience with them.
P.S Yeah, the one I'm considering is exactly the direct cu II, although I know the HAWK is proven to be better for cooling+ OCing

Yeah. Fair enough. Remember, since the Hawk is MSI, you get the Triple Over-Voltage advantage. Rather than controlling the voltage under a single tab, you get three. I'm sure you know this. But with the 560 Ti, it really shows its capabilities.

Lemme troll with some behardware infrared photos and Tom's Hardware measurements:
HD 6950 CF

GTX 570 SLI

..but wait these are not the hd6870 and gtx 560Ti! It is because there are no multi gpu measuements of these cards, yet we can speculate that multi gpu heat readings are even better for the hd 6870s than hd 6950's and worse for gtx 560Ti's than gtx 570's regarding these single card heat images:


Now, my fave chart:
