Can't seem to find a GTX 680 4GB FTW any where...

I bought a EVGA GTX 680 4GB FTW from newegg maybe around 6 months ago and I want to buy another one for SLI but I can't seem to find it any where... I searched on NewEgg and it's discontinued. Amazon is all used/really expensive ($3,000). I also checked pricewatch.com and they do not hold it and neither does tigerdirect.com... EVGA.com only holds the 2GB version of the FTW. Would I be able to use SLI with a 2GB and a 4GB version or does anyone know where to buy a 4GB version?

You could probably SLI the 680 Classified with the 680 FTW, since both have 4gb vram. They SHOULD automatically adjust to the same clock speeds from my understanding.

For that price just sell the one 680 and buy a GTX780!

You would need to get a 4gb model. Nvidia recommends against using cards with different vram; it would need to be adjusted using a third party program in order to work properly.

also, I woudnt pay more then $400 for a 680. try finding a used one.

Overpriced new GTX770 is cheaper and faster.

The 770 is roughly equal to the 680 actually. There would be no point in him replacing a 680 with a 770.

No instead of paying $500-600 for another 680 I suggested $650 for a GTX780 in my first post. He might even come out ahead selling his GTX680 and replacing with two GTX770 looking at these ridiculous prices.
By the way the 770 is a re-branded 680 more efficient and higher std clocks.

I feel as if just buying another 680 for a used one for $490 would be easier then going through all the trouble of trying to sell my 680 and all that... One last thing before I make a final decision just to make sure (even though I think it'll work) SLI is compatible with an i7 3770k CPU and P8Z77-M pro motherboard correct?

Alright! Just wanted to make sure cause I heard one of the latest intel CPUs don't support SLI. Thank you guys for your help.
