First time posting, long time visitor.
I’ll make this short. Because of a “Deactivated Item” at newegg, I wasn’t able to purchase the “exact” same card. However it’s the same model. My question is: will I be able to SLI these 2 cards?

Now the only differences between the 2 cards (besides the model numbers) are the Core Clock frequencies and the Stream Processors. Will they still SLI? Thanks for reading.

As they are both G80 Gpu's you should be OK. I bet someone suggests that you sell your existing card and get a G92 based one though.

Yes, they will probably SLI just fine.

Why do you want to SLI in the first place? What's your resolution? What games do you play? What results do you expect from SLI?
