ASUS has already made a name for themselves as the top motherboard manufacturer for quite some time now, but they are really making a name for themselves in the graphics card market as well. Their specialized cards use quality components, come with better cooling than the reference design and even sometimes are overclocked. The card we are looking at today is no different. ASUS’s GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP comes factory overclocked up to 900MHz, uses ASUS’s own DirectCU II cooler and features a super alloy design on the power components.
