Hi,

I have a 780Ti reference and am planning on getting the Asus 780Ti mentioned above for SLI. I'm not sure what would be the effect, or would be better if I get another reference gpu. Can I please get some pros and cons. Any input would be helpful.

well, firstly, that would work, the pros are that you get a 30-50% gaming performance increase, the cons are that if you have bad airflow in your case they may overheat quicker as air is trapped more easily between the 2 cards

thanks for your reply, I don't think I would have a problem with airflow. I have a CM Storm Trooper case with 2 of its stock fans blowing straight to the card as of the moment and an H110 on top with fans pushing air out the case. I got other fans in there but back to the topic, its great to know that it'll work but do you think that I'll be spending more money on an oc'd card to sli with a reference card? I guess what I'm really asking is, would the oc'd card clock down to match the ref card or would it be the other way around. Searched around the net, have to say I couldn't really understand what the others were trying to say.

I think the card will downclock to match the reference model, make sure they both have the same vram etc but if airflow isn't a problem, should be fine :D

so, are you saying that, it'll be better (and possibly cheaper) to get a reference card than the oc'd card to sli with the one I got now?

yes, if I were you i'd do that, so you don't have incompatibility issues between both, if there is any. And also looks better :)
