What are the Pro's and Con's of SLI with the same graphics cards but from different companies?

When you SLI two different cards, the weaker one will set the pace. For instance, the EVGA has a core clock of 1111mhz. The MSI has a core clock of 1137. Therefore, when you SLI them, your current MSI card will underclock itself to match the slower EVGA 1111mhz. A way around this may be to overclock the EVGA card, but if it cant maintain a stable core at that speed, you will end up crashing. However, having two 770's in SLI would surpass the performance loss from the underclock.
