Direct CU? why Twin Frozr III? any difference

The ASUS Direct Cu 570 is the one you chose, it is 3 slots as apposed to most cards and that includes the MSI twin Froz III. The MSI is a very good 570, non reference and has excellent cooling, same as the ASUS one you pciked however it is a 2 slot card and that to me and most would be very appealing especially if your planning on SLI in the future.

You havn't said a word about the GTX 580???

If he was going for the 580 why not go for a dual gpu card such as this one

Just adding to it, also 2 of those in crossfire make a quad crossfire right?
