It will work, althought second one will be ran at the 600 Mhz zore clock and 1800 Memory clock to match the first one. Also make sure power supply can handle this as use a lot of power to run SLI - 8800 GTX. In fact, when I ask making mine to into SLI, all my responses didn't recommended to me because wasn't worth it price or power requirements.
The faster card will slow down to the slower cards speed, so you won't get any benefit from the OC2 card's higher clocks unless you overclock the OC card to OC2 speeds But in essence, yes you can SLi them!
Thanks for the info. Very helpful and useful. Cheers,
