Get one of the eVGA ones with the -AR designation at the end. If you register that card within 30 days of receiving it, you get a lifetime warranty.

The MSI cards with the TwinFrozr cooling systems are, technically, superior. However, the warranty they offer is inferior. If you only plan on keeping the card for 3 years or less, the MSI cards win. No doubt.

just get the cheapest one and overclock it yourself. all you are paying for with the more expensive ones is the overclock, which you can easily to yourself
the most expensive one is a 2gb model only get it if you are playing at an extreme resolution

Well, the ones with the funky fan on the very end vent the hot air out of your case, I think the other ones let some of it back into the case. If you have temp problems as it is, you may want to go for the one that vents exhaust out of the case. The other may be a bit more quite, but I'm not sure.

DO NOT get the one with the Fan at the end, those suck for cooling.

The one you want has the Fan in the Middle of the Card.

And they both vent exhaust from the rear.

My GTX460 SE has the fan in the middle and is still a rear exhaust and its a Crap load cooler even having a massive OC.

The middle cooler is the one you want.

Besides, the GPU is in the middle of the card, not the end. so why would you want a fan to be at the end of a card instead of the middle where the actual GPU is?

Why?

Look waiting for a product makes sense if you know for sure it will be coming within a month, any longer and you are just depriving yourself of fun while waiting, the 600 series is lightyears away from release so why sit there with a old video card waiting forever? get a card now, enjoy yourself and be glad your not wasting your time waiting for a product.

it depends on how old/slow your current video card is.

Mine is a 3 year old ATI HD4870 and I have been eyeing the EVGA 570 for a while now. It's been slowly dipping in the last 6 months, from $350 to $295.

My card still run most games decently but it starts lagging in some newer games on High (FPS drop below 60). So I have been eyeing the 570 from Amazon for a while.

Quote from Wikipedia :
In September 2010, nVidia officially revealed general information regarding two future lines of GeForce cards, codenamed "Kepler" and "Maxwell". The Kepler architecture, which nVidia states will be available in 2011, will be the successor to Fermi and will be produced on a 28 nm fabrication process. Maxwell, the probable successor to Kepler, is currently expected to be available in 2013.[18]

It says 2011 for nVidia's new ship "Kepler".
So unless your card is super old and weak, you can wait an extra 3-4 months to see what the prices of the 570 / 580 do. I know I will since my card is not completely crippled yet and most games still do not support DX11.

Btw whats your video card now ?
