Going to get another graphics card for christmas..

So for christmas, my system deserves another graphics card. I currently have a Gigabyte GTX 670, and I wanted to get another 670 and run them in SLI.

I have a few questions before I go and buy another card.

1) Should I buy another card of the same brand? I've been looking at the Asus 670 and it seems like a beast of a card.

2) Does it matter what brands the cards are?

3) Will I get better performance if I go with the Gigabyte or the Asus?

4) If I do buy the Asus, will I see any performance drops of the other card? If so, how can I fix this?

Thanks for responding.

    While the brands do not matter, the better card will downclock itself to match up with the other card. If you have a card that runs at 900MHz, and another that runs at 1000MHz for example, both will run at 900MHz performance (though you can overclock them).
