While I agree on the cooler, but one is a 448 cores and the other is a regular. The Zotac will be a better
performer while the Asus will be cooler and quieter.

I value more cool and quiet, but its a tough decision.

I guess I'd prefer this Gigabyte over the Asus and this Gigabyte over the Zotac.

Out of those choices, granted budget allows, I guess the better choice is the Gigabyte 560 ti 448, cool, quiet and powerful. However, in terms of performance for dollar, you get more with the regular ti.
