Not really apart from the quality of the cards (in that some produce better custom cards and some with produce the reference design with cheaper parts... that's not to say there is anything wrong with them.

A 570 should be able to beat out a 560Ti even with a slight oc on it. And you will have the benefit of slightly larger ram

You don't really here much about inno3d outside of Asia and the UK, if you could go with another brand I'd go with asus/msi simply because I've heard better things about their rma processes than inno3d and they rma on serial numbers but if you're stuck with inno3d for the gtx 570 just go with it since it's a reference card. You buy into different brands for reference cards on warranty, support, etc.

From what I have read the msi gtx 560 ti twin froxzr ii can overclock pretty well. So I would recommend that card, but it also depends on what resolution your playing at and what your other components are.

""And you will have the benefit of slightly larger ram""
-if he gets a second card down the road 1gb will be nerffing the gpu's so ,I vote for the 570 also.
-but also wait a week or 2 and see if the new cards from amd\ati's shake the nv price tree.

Why does everyone act like the more expensive card won't overclock? I know the 560ti probably will go further but if you o/c them both the 570 is stil going to win.

The cost isn't justifiable for the 570 performance compared to getting a 580
