Difference between two cards

Rather than getting a GTX 460 SC shipped from the other side of Australia, I've found a card locally. I just want to know which of the following cards is better. I'll be getting them for exactly the same price so it doesn't matter which one. As far as I can tell, the MSI card is better but I would really appreciate another opinion on this.

msi GeForce GTX 560
Official Site
Newegg.com

EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked
Official Site
Newegg.com


It comes down to these two cards. Whichever one is better, I'll be buying.
Thanks in advance,
Jaidyn

Generally speaking the 560 will be the better card.
And if the price is about the same it would be the better choice I think.



If you go with the EVGA card though, it might be worth looking for the AR skew.
Like this one: Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Lifetime warranty+ 90 days to Step-up to a faster card if you so choose.
Otherwise the same.


Never had a MSI card, so can't really comment on how good or bad they may be.

The 5xx series is a improved 4xx...the 560 has a faster clock 47/200Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart : Best Graphics Cards For The Money: May 2011

a notch higher on the pecking order....there is also much to be said for buying local too..
