Guys, can you please help me pick one on these three 560Ti's of my choice.

1. Asus GTX 560Ti DirectCU II TOP
2. MSI GTX 560Ti Hawk
3. Gigabyte GTX 560Ti SOC

I would go for Asus personally.

In the end its going to be up to you. Alot of people like MSI. Tomshardware prefered the Asus, some other reviewers swear by the gigabyte, though it has a history of being unstable and very very power hungry. There is no clear cut winner, just people who prefer one over the other.

Asus an MSI are both great. There was a good article here on Tom's a few months back, comparing the best 560 Ti's, but I can't find it anymore. I was planning to get an Asus but they ran out of stock, so I went for MSI and it's been great so far, didn't even need to overclock higher than factory OC (880 MHz). It's up to you. The article I mentioned chose Asus as the winner, though.

I am fan of ASUS however this time i bought MSI GTX 560Ti Hawk. Its OC out the box 950Mhz very cool design. If u read the articles in some game
560ti hawk beats 6950..one issue card is bit noisy but end of the day performance matters... ;)

Cheers.

The MSI gives you higher clocks out the door, but I would go with Asus.

I recently got this Asus GTX 560 (non-ti):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121446


And I have nothing but good things to report about it. The build quality is the best of any card I've ever owned, seriously (and this is the cheapest video card I've ever purchased, mind you). It also runs very cool and very quiet, which was important to me. I haven't played around with it much, but I get idle temps in the mid 30s celsius, with a fan speed of around 14%. When running the Unigine Heaven 2.5 benchmark, it got to 67 degrees celsius at a fan speed of 39%. I'm sure the 560 ti version will be a little bit warmer, but yea, I am now a fan.
