Basically, what it says in the title. If I'd buy the Windforce, I'd probably not have enough space for a second long graphics card. I'm not planning to get a second one, but I like to keep the option open. Will a shorter 770, like the MSI Lightning or a reference model, SLI with the Gigabyte card?

sli is achievable no matter what the manufacturer is as long its the same model. for ex a gtx frm gigabyte 680 can sli another 680 from msi or asus. however the only difference will come to play is for ex if one is at stock speeds while other is superclocked the superclocked will down throttle to match the stock. in short msi (980mhz) + asus(1020mhz) = together 2 cards running at 980 mhz. same goes with vram

Ok cheers, so basically whenever I decide to go for a shorter second 770 I have to make sure it's got 2GB of vram and a memory speed as close to the Gigabyte as possible, to get the most out of the combination.

need not be the same clocks as long as they are the same chip, you can manually adjust the clocks 4 overclocking. its better to get the same model vram though :)
