Now the 560ti card I am looking at says that it is superclocked. Does that mean anything or is it just a sales gimmick?

More or less a sales gimmick. I got the DCUII version and is plenty happy with it.
The card is plenty quiet and powerful (OCed to 990Mhz).

Ummm, its hardly a sales gimmick. It basically an overclocked version of a "regular" 560ti card thats gaurenteed to run stable and that speed outa the box vs if you overclock it yourself, there is no guarentee. Essentially, you could return the card if it doesn't work well or at all at that advertised speed. Up to you if you want that "peace of mind" or not and pay extra for it. I got my eVGA GTX 570 SC which is 797mhz/1594 vs 737/1464mhz stock and is now running 850mhz/1770 on stock voltage.
