GTX 570: Palit Sonic Platinum or MSI Twin Frozr II?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright guys I'm looking to upgrade to a 570, but I'm not sure which one to choose. I've narrowed it down to these two:

Palit Sonic Platinum:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814261097

MSI Twin Frozr II:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127564

The Palit 570 is stock OC'd a bit higher than the MSI and is about $5 more. I'm just really not sure about factory overclocked cards, are they "better" than stock cards? I know the MSI card just recently came out and I haven't been able to find any reviews on it, so if anyone here has one and they can chime in that'd be great.

Yes, the MSI one may have just come out, but that's their tried and tested Twin Frozr design. I'd go with MSI as well.

If only it came with the free games like the other 570s...
