I am sorry if I am going over old ground but I read the article about SLI and FAQ's and I noticed that it is possible to run 2 different cards in SLI mode providing they are of an identical or almost identical specification.
I have, at the moment, a single Zotac 8800GTS 512mb AMP graphics card and want to go SLI. I am finding it quite expensive to add another Zotac as the website I purchased the original one from no longer supplies them and to be honest it was a bargain at £139. The cheapest I have seen since is £170! Since reading the article I have been looking for a similar card and have found the XFX 8800GTS 512mb ALPHA DOG EDITION, which seems to do the trick. The specs for the Zotac are:
Graphics Processing Unit
- NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 GTS @ 678MHz engine clock
- 128 Stream Processors
- Dual 400 MHz RamDAC
- Max. Resolution @ 2560 x 1600
- True 128-bit floating point high dynamic-range (HDR) lighting with 16x full- screen anti-aliasing
