The Gigabyte one seems really nice from reviews and I like how it's slimmer. It will give more space on the MB width wise. It should fit in my CM HAF 922 case I hope.

IMO the best are the Palit and the Gainward Phantom and the GLH editions as the have EK blocks for them.

Honestly, I think any of these cards will do a great job. Are their any reviews done that anyone knows about? I'm sure they all have great performance.

Well, you need to ask yourself a few questions and in doing so you'll get a very definitive answer from me.

Price:
Does this matter to you at all?

I would say the Asus and Gigabyte cards are the most cost effective. All of these cards boast non reference design (edit: whoops, apparently the gigabyte one uses 4 vrms)and after market cooling. I couldn't get myself to buy the TF3 because it was over 20 dollars more than the Asus card. By choosing to buy a 570, I was trying to make sure I was "cost effective", if cost wasn't a problem then I would have simply just avoided all the hassle of the 570 reference design by buying a 580.

Performance:
Are you looking for the best overclocker or cooler?

From my research, MSI is the only manufacturer out of the three that bins their gpus, meaning you'll probably have better luck with that card.

I can say for sure that the Asus cards are a mixed bag and I am not sure about Gigabyte. Mine oc'd pretty well, but still the max for OCCT stability was 850 core, if you look at the DCII thread you'll see a full write up of my results.

As far as cooling goes, My DCII idles at 28c - 29c and goes up to 80c with a very quiet fan setting.
From what I've read the DCII may have the best 570 cooling, but it comes at a price because of its 3 slot design, which was fine for me. They all seem to be within range of each other in the cooling department, but the noise levels are most likely won by the DCII. I've checked older reviews on different video cards which featured the DCII cooler and a TF2 and the Asus won.


Perks & Resell value:
Do you care about warranty or software?

If you ask me, all of the non reference brands listed here can't beat EVGA perks of lifetime warranty and their OC software suite, but since EVGA has nothing but reference cards, you have to make a more difficult decision here.

MSI afterburner will work with the TF3, I'm not sure about the Gigabyte card, but since I own the Asus DCII, I will tell you that you cannot adjust voltage at all with Afterburner, you must use Asus Smart doctor. I use afterburner to lock in my clock values, then I use asus smart doctor to adjust the voltages, after everything is set in stone, smart doctor keeps the values you used from afterburner. That way I don't need to have two programs launching for me at the start.

As far as warranty goes, I've been told that Asus warranty is transferable through serial number which would make sense because Asus products seem to have high resell demand, I can't say for sure about MSI or Gigabyte.

Summary:
They're all non reference cards with aftermarket cooling (edit: whoops, apparently the gigabyte one uses 4 vrms) . All three of them are great choices, but you need to make a choice based on what you're looking for.

This is simply a choice based on cost vs possible performance. I say possible because how well your card overclocks is completely random. There is no guarantee the TF3 will be a top overclocker either, but with the rumors of MSI binning their gpus, you can probably bet that your chances are much greater.

Very helpful, thanks. I think it may be worth the $20 to go for the TF3.

No.

They've got a reference card.

And a GTX 570 HD.

The HD stands for "Horrible Design".

OP: If you want the worst non reference 570, it's right there. Dont buy it.

Avoid the Gigabyte, It uses the stock # of VRMs, get the MSI if you want a good overclocker or need a dual slot, get the ASUS if you can fit it and want the quietest card.
