I've decided to go with MSI 560 ti, was deciding between asus but MSI seems to perform better i believe based on all the reviews i got.

BUT ! i can't decide which card i should get.

i don't play games a lot but when i do, i like to max out my settings all de way, i was every single detail i can get out of the game to enjoy at its best.

so which card??

560 ti 2gb

or

560 ti 1gb hawk edition

I don't think you'll need the 2 GB model unless you plan on playing Crysis 1 or 2 maxed out. My 560ti OC TFII can handle BF3 at ultra textures, high everything else, 16x AF, 2xMSAA, HBAO off, motion blur off, ambient occlusion off, and get >60 FPS at 1080p

Personally if I were investing in either of your options I'd go for the MSI GTX 560Ti 2GB TwinFrozr II card over the Hawk 1GB for less VRAM and slightly noiser fan. smile.gif

You wont be able to max bf3 at ultra with everything on and get more than 40 FPS.

Just play on high everything and then you will get decent fps.

Oh and the MSI hawk.

HAWK edition it is.

BUT ! started a new delimma, it goes toe to toe with 6950 and the price is cheaper for that as well.

read reviews and stuff on that too but im still going for hawk edition for now thumb.gif


CYBER MONDAY !! BLACK FRIDAY !! which ever 1 comes first, and gives a lower price. m grabbing that baby biggrin.gif

over clocking capability on that is insane, thank you Aniket for that suggestion.

i am running xfx 550 pro core edition, should be more than enough to power the beast and o/c it further smile.gif

REPS for every 1 for suggestions =D
