SLI: Gigabyte 560ti soc or MSI 560ti hawk?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to (finally) upgrade the gpu's. I want factory oc'd cards, and I've been considering these two brands. Seems some people have been burned with either, getting cards that aren't up to par. I'm thinking that the MSI may have a slightly better build quality, (according to their marketing, anyway). Both seem to have great cooling solutions. Any comments or suggestions appreciated. Will be ordering this afternoon. Thanks.

You may want to check out my sale thread. They have factory OC's not massive but some.

Guru3d reviewed both.

Gigabyte SOC: http://www.guru3d.com/article/gigaby...i-soc-review/1

MSI Hawk: http://www.guru3d.com/article/msi-ge...-hawk-review/1

If I were to choose, I would pick the Gigabyte version which is slightly faster, cooler and less noise, relatively speaking of course.

Read the 2 reviews and use them to compare. See if you come to the same conclusion as mine.

I use the msi gtx 560 ti hawk twin frozr iii (sli) and I am satisfied with it.
gta iv patch 1.0.7.0 = 63fps
dirt 3 = 113fps
resident evil 5 (directx 10) = 187fps
super street fighter iv arcade edition = 211fps
all setting high and vsync off.
so i vote msi gtx 560 ti hawk
