Default 560 Ti Options

So i want to make a upgrade and buy a new gpu. I cant choose between Evga 560 Ti DS , the reference one or something else!
I really like the 560 Ti DS because of its design and it is the cheapest also!
Please help me choose or give me an advice!
PS. I currently have a 8600GT so i really want to upgrade.

Ive read a few reviews on the ds (local to me) and its a good card but some dont like how it overclocks apparently. Reference isnt a bad choice either will just be a bit noisier in all likelyness

I prefer the Asus DCU II version. Very cool, and very quiet.

^^ +1. I'm quite pleased with my Asus Direct CuII 560Ti's and can certainly recommend them. They're usually a bit more than the reference card, so it might be out of your budget, though.
