SLI Setup with Geforce 550ti 1GB & 2GB

So I have the EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit graphics card and I wanted to setup an SLI with EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 2GB 192-bit graphics card and was wondering if the memory difference will effect the performance?

  1. Nvidia SLI does not work with cards of different memory sizes.

    You would be much better of selling the GTX550ti and getting a faster better card, paring lower end GPUs in dual setup is never a good idea.

    Is there any you recommend, keep in mind I have x2 PCI Express 2.0 x16. With a budget of around 300?

    Well then, you can get pretty much almost any single GPU out there if you sell the GTX550ti and add that money to the $300.

    Let me ask you a few things first.
    Full system specs? Especially EXACT Powersupply.
    What games are you playing and at what resolution?
    Are you interested in multi monitor setups later?
