I have an EVGA Geforce GTX 660 Ti FTW Signature 2 and as you all know, the 660 ti is falling more and more behind as of late. I decided to get another one to do SLI but it seems to be discontinued. The only one I could find was a used one on Amazon and I don't really want to buy any key components used.

Anyway, is it possible to pair it up with a different gtx 660 ti like an Asus or MSI? Which one would be best? Also, is it even worth the trouble? I don't have the greatest cooling and my PSU is only 620Watts. What should I do?

Possibly. I have looking in to that as I have a GTX 680 Signature that was discontinued. I think it just has to be the same GPU and the manufacturer probably dosen't matter. Having said that, I have seen ati / Amd cards used as the primary card, with an Nivida card installed for the PhysX.

As coastie65 said, the manufacturer does not matter, only that the cards are both 660ti's. What may be more important is what motherboard and PSU do you have? that could be the deciding factor.

Forgot to mention that. I have an Azrock Z77 Extreme 4. My PSU is a bronze 620watt seasonic. Come to think of it, I should check if my case even has space for sli.

With that MB and PSU, you should be good to go.
