Yes, they're the exact same card, the SC version is just clocked a little higher. You can actually use something like GPU tweak to pair them up and match them.

It would be better if they were both made by the same company but they don't have to be.

I've got an Asus 780ti and I've manually OC'd it to 1130 core clock from 876 and it runs great.

Thank you. They are both EVGA reference but yes one is the SC version and one isn't. Thank you for the fast response. How do you pair them using GPU tweak? Do you have a link to a tutorial?

You can use this for your cards:

http://www.evga.com/precision/

It's the same idea as GPU tweak, if you don't like Precision you can get GPU tweak online or use MSI afterburner.

In the tool you're using to overclock or manage your cards with, there will be something like a "lock" option, which will lock both cards to the same settings.

Once you decide which tool you want to use go ahead and google the tool name and "sli tutorial" so, for example "Precision overclock SLI tutorial" and you'll find a bunch. :) 

If you get stuck let me know.

P.S I'm jealous..

No just want to max out all games on 1440p. A single will give me playable fps but I want consistent high fps where dips are still in a playable range. Not sure how much overkill it is but I love the eye candy and this will be the first time I will have a high tier set-up so i'm excited to see. I had a 670 prior to this lol

You sir, are awesome. I've got the one TI and the only game I can't max out is Arma3, I'd love to have enough dough to grab another.

Seems like a good idea but at the end of the year you've bought a card and a half :S

Either way, kick ass system!

It's only gonna be $140 more in the end if I keep it but I plan on upgrading to what's the best at the time so since I will be upgrading so much I can just do it that way and now I will just have to sell one when something better comes out or keep it and throw it in another build but I will rather spend a little more in the end than to keep dishing out so much at once. I guess it would be stupid on low end cards but high end with unlimited upgrades I think you can't beat it especially since they keep coming out with better cards so much. Like everyone who spent so much on 780's on first release then price dropped so they sold them for less and forked over more money to upgrade to Ti's and we all know the 6gb are around the corner then 800 series so it never ends. I'll see how it goes this time around, if it sucks i'll never do it again but I did get 2 770 lightnings from them then the next day they had 780 Ti's so I upgraded before I even got the two lightnings. They sent tho Ti anyways so I got the 770's the next day and used them thell the Ti got here and they sent packing material and paid for shipping back so in that sense it's good and also I won't have to deal with RMA's cause they'll send me a new one then they will deal with the RMA. It's good so far but we'll see. They are new but the customer support is good. They called me to ask if I had questions and to let me know my cards were sent and they reply to emails quick even after hours.

I guess if you look at it that way that's kind of a smart deal in a sense. Considering in the last 2 years I've spent almost 1400 on cards, I could have spent the same but had the best card out the whole time.

Actually kind of smart if you think about it. I wish you look good sir!
