Need advice from Asus GTX560 DCU II owners

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Still can not make up my mind on which of these two to buy... 1> ASUS 560 dcu II , 2> MSI 560 twinfrozr II
Most people seems to be tending towards the msi one, but the asus card is so damn sexy. and I love asus. So, you see my predicament. And Graphics cards are pretty costly here in India (560 price here is equivalent to 570 price in the USA) so once I buy it, I will be stuck with it for quite some time. So, need your help deciding. I guess all I want to know is your experiences with the asus card. Are there any problems with it? Does something need to be tweaked? Are the fans as loud as I have read on diff sites? Does it OC to 950mhz on stock voltage? Heat issues? anything that has struck you as worth mentioning, plz mention here. Thanks in advance guys.

I remember the good old days, when all I had to was to buy the xfx card and be happy with it, but now.....

It seems that I have chosen a card which no one has bought yet... I really liked the look of this baby.

Maybe try posting in the Nvidia section? I know you arent supposed to post in two sections but I would bet more 560 owners frequent that part of the forum.

From the reviews I've read on the ASUS 560ti DCU II and the MSI 560ti Twin Frozr II and the fans are quiet. Both made with quality high grade components. Both companies are very reputable in video cards and mother boards. Solid non-reference cards.

I haven't owned the ASUS Direct CU but I've owned a MSI AMD 6870 Twin Frozr II card and it's a very solid build. Very over clockable due to the good cooling. ASUS's card is very similar in build as well.

You can't go wrong choosing either one. If you find the ASUS more appealing then go for it, your the one that's got to be happy at the end of a hard day coming home from work to your computer rig. Get what you want.

Here are two reviews of the cards you should read from top to bottom and then make your choice.

The ASUS GeForce GTX560 DirectCU II

MSI N560GTX-Ti GeForce Video Card

Let us know what you decided and post back. Happy gaming!

Get the one that has VRM cooling and OC the hang out of it! I thought the ASUS did, but I'm not sure if it was the DCII or TOP model. I think the ASUS is sweet looking too.
