The MSi Is clocked slightly higher and is 2 slots. I'd say go for the MSi.

I just recently purchased the twin frozr II and I am really happy with it..It runs strong, it runs cool and is quiet...I haven't had a real chance to sit down and get a max oc on it yet, but I have got it stable at 850..As mentioned before it is a 2 slot card vs the dcu ii which is a 3 slot card..I say get the twin frozr II...I haven't had any buyers remorse either.

i'd go for the asus model its have a full custom pcb unlike msi and i think you know aboute the fact that the originale bcp of the card has many problems and 26 % of the cards die after overcklocking so go for asus

ASUS DCII all the way, because of the reasons yeahi stated.
If you're not a fan of the 3 slot cooler you can also pick the MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III PE/OC which is also with custom pcb.
