I saw online that there is one factor that determines what cards can SLI. The GPU. This in mind, I have an EVGA GTX 650 Ti BOOST 1GB. Since this has the same GPU as the 2Gb version, could I SLI the 1Gb version and the 2Gb version?

no, dont do that.. you should SLI only the same cards with the same specifications.. it wouldn't be "oh, i have 1 gb and a 2gb card which gives me 3gb vram".. it would be like, if you have a 2gb card and another 2 gb card, it would have a good 2gb performance, not 4gb

Yes but you'll be limited to 1gb.

yes it can be done. but the system still detect as both only having 1gb per gpu. by chance if there is a game that you play using one more than 1gb, the game will not be anle to access the extra vram in the gpu. instead it will taking system ram which can slows gane down
