Currently I am building my own gaming rig since LGA775 rolled around. So far I have the usual flavor of this quarter. Corsair 800d, Asus P8P67-Pro Rev, Intel Core I5 2500k. Just to get started and measure the amount of room I have for the other parts. Now I have been doing quite a bit of research about video cards. I have been referencing the magazine issues which they recommend the best performance card is the ASUS ENGTX570 which confused me, because on the site the best of the best would be the MSI n560gtx ti twin frozr II.

My question to you fine pc enthusiasts is... which card do you recommend?

Some info to help you:
I will be playing MMORPGs on this rig
Not to exclude future titles such as Deus Ex 3, Crysis etc.
I do want to run two cards ( I have always wanted to run an SLI gaming rig )

i have 2X MSI Twin FrozrII GTX 460's in sli and love them!

they idle at around 40 to 45C and during heavy gaming they heat up to around 55 to 60C

which is quite cool considering i had 2X GTS 240's that idled at 60C.

SLI 570's will obviously give you more performance, so that is the winner hands down. But on the flip side the 570's IF overclocked will fry the VRM's. It's a known issue with them, but some say the non reference ones are fine to OC and have not had any issues. But if you look at the SOC Gigabyte 560Ti it performs quite well and holds it's own against a reference 580.

Or you could just break down and buy 2 GTX580's like I did yesterday :D The egg has the EVGA's at $40 off plus $30 mail in rebate! It was too hard of a deal to pass up.
