Future SLI-ing, and how a new card compares to the older one?

Just thinking about a possible future SLI setup. Hypothetically, if I have my 680 for the next two years then decide to SLI to boost performance, is there a clear divide between the quality of the old card versus the new card I would buy to SLI with?

Also, what if I modestly overclock the GPU for that two years, is that bad for SLI-ing two years down the road?

As long as your first card isn't damaged, it should SLI just fine. OC-ing won't change anything in the process of SLI-ing, I believe. You could always overclock the new card so they are the same as well.

I bought a 560Ti 2 years ago and recently got another to SLI my system. Worked fine, no issues. Hypothetically, your new card will last longer, but you'd have upgraded long before then.

Should be no problem as long as you can find the same card in two years you should have no problems.
