Just keep the EVGA it is a god card and the extra FPS you will get out of the TFIII is not worth the hassle.

Exactly. Its not like the OP picked...IDK...palit or some 3rd tier OEM for their gpu. EVGA's are damn good and unless the case is a HAF-X / 932 I would not go with the MSI. The R3 is a good and quiet case...but good, quiet and high airflow is a VERY tough combo.

Plus...NCIX doesnt have it in stock and while it is easy to plug in a GPU when you get the rig....why bother with two lots of shipping fees and all the hassle? Stick with the EVGA. Its pre-OC'ed and I doubt you will bother with OCing your GPU manually anyways. Hell...I rarely bother OC'ing my GPU beyond some minor MHz boosts.

YMMV but enjoy the rig you selected its very good and stressing over 1 or 2% dif...is not worth it.

There is weak and then there is weak. Its be designed to run at the loads they put on it (otherwise it would be a disaster for the mfg'er in RMAs). You wont be able to add more OC to it (as it has a very decent factory OC as it is)...but thats about it. EVGA sells a crap ton and the more of a product you sell the more problems will happen. Law of big numbers.

Hell if in two or three years it dies...you will most likely get a newer model back...which will ALSO have a lifetime warranty.

Edit:

Honestly. IF you are worried this much about performance and the like...why not simply bite the bullet and get a 580? Will solve all your problems...except budget related that is. :)~

Well heres the deal:
1) the MSI is specced at 770mhz.
2) The evga is 797.

3) You will have to add 27 mhz to the MSI. In all likelhood this will happen...BUT msi does not guarantee it.
4) The MSI probably has more OC headroom...BUT this late in this gen 800 is damn close to the max you - a OC newcomer - can realistically expect to get from a 570. You can get more but dont expect it to last years and years. GPUs are more fragile and MUCH more sensitive to voltage than a CPU. The monster OCs you see on ANY Gpu usually is done by e-peen'ers looking for one shot numbers to post and then either RMA it (ie its a suicide run) or turn it down to a normal OC level and hope it last until the next gen comes out...at which point they sell it PDQ. OR by "golden cards" which the peep has gone through many cards to find...AND is very experienced in OC'ing.

5) You own the Evga.
6) in either case dont expect 580 performance from either card.
7) You are worrying about a couple FPS at the most in your games.

Those are the pros and cons of both. Make a decision and let us know how it goes as you can go around and round infinitely (and get your 25 post count to do a BST run...in which case expect to be banned for trolling and post count inflating) if you over think it.

I doubt they wont honour their warranty (unless you do something really foolish). BUT remember with OCing its all luck of the draw. They dont guarantee anything above what it is rated for (ie 770mhz). TBH You may or may not get much OC out of either card. Like I said, for a first time GPU OC'er - who IS afraid of burning their card - 800 is pretty safe number to aim for. The evga...its plug and play as its factory Overclocked to basically a good "safe" number.
