I'm not so impressed by its heatsink design and it only has 4 VRMs instead of 6, but I don't have one so can't be sure. It's shorter than the reference design, so if you are lacking on space, its a good choice. 7 of the 8 560s on newegg are priced at $249, including the ones with better designs (subjectively). So really you have a large range of choices to choose from. I know EVGA, MSI, ASUS, and Gigabyte are well known for their motherboard and video card reliability.

I have the MSI Twin Frozr II version and in BOINC (SETI@home CUDA + some GPUGRID) the overnight max temperature was 55C at stock speeds (880MHz). This card is ridiculously cool.

Also, 1GHz (!), if only just for bragging rights.

Msi Twin Frozer better than Palit .

Personal exp. with Palit 4850 sonic. Stay away from Palit.

Ok I just was asking because it looks like Palit's had better specs but if it's not good then never mind. So the EVGA for reliability and Msi for cooling?

There will be no such thing as graphics cards in 20 years. But does this mean if my bro gets his GT 240 RMA'd he'll get a GTS 450 back? Or a GTX 560 Ti?

It's an EVGA.

Evga probably have 240's in stock, so my guess is he will get the same card back

Do all the 560's pass HD Audio (Dolby TrueHD, DTS Master Audio) over HDMI?

All of the brands are pretty decent. Whatever you do, do not pay over 250 for the card, that would just be a waste.

Normally I would recommend EVGA, but while this is just an assumption, the aftermarket coolers from Gigabyte and MSI probably outperform the EVGA which appears to be reference.
