You could OC the lower one or UC the higher one. Even if you mix the revision with 96+ and the 96 shader version it should still work. HOWEVER if you have the G92 version I don't think it will work with the G80 version, just because it really is a totally different GPU with the same name.

Incase you weren't aware there are actually 3 different version of the 8800GTS. There's one with 96 shader processors and there is one with 96+ shader processors, which gets confusing because it has between 96 and 112 shaders(don't ask why). Then there is the G92 which a totally different bag of nuts, it's alot faster and like you were saying it has 512mb of ram and not 640.

Since you're considering another G80 GTS 640 I think you'll be ok.

That config is not supported, so if you have issues...
But it seems logcal that if you underclock the Super Clocked version to run at the same speed as the other card it might work...

good luck because I saw no real huge difference in my SLI system and am seeling my two 8800 gts's for a new 8800gts 512.
