ASUS vs MSI - GTX 580

So I'm looking to build a new PC for gaming, and I've found 3 cards for the GTX 580 within my preferred price range:

ASUS ENGTX580 DCII [http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/N...I2DIS1536MD5/]

MSI N580GTX TWIN FROZR II OC [http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N580G...zr-II-OC.html]

I'm probably not going SLI or overclock either. What do you think?

Neither page can be displayed so they must be dynamic. Please tell us the specs or point us to the Newegg page. As for the card to get if they about the same price and the same chip then I would go with the one that has the most memory. You might also look at clock speed. If they both have the same clock speed and memory then it really doesn't matter which one you get so I would go for the cheaper one.

I don't have a GTX 580 But I do own a HD6870 Twin Frozr which looks exactly like my card and it runs great and it is most likely pre overclocked and would offer you Afterburner to TWEEK it out

Go with the Frozr won't be disapointed

This my Version it looks the same

The MSI is 'louder' at higher fan speeds than the DCII.


However, each are great cards and you wouldn't go wrong with either.

The ASUS is 3 slots.... Will it break my motherboard?

Now that you posed this question do you plan on any future upgrades because that will come into play with the room department

Msi is a Twin slot so you would probally go to a twin then a three just for the sake of saving a little more space

With that kind of investment I recommend checking the warranty on both cards.
