SLI question

I have the EVGA X58 SLI motherboard and I bought the EVGA geforce GTX 295
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130449
and they are discontinued now and all that's available are the EVGA geforce GTX 295 superclocked edition
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130508&cm_re=evga_gtx_295-_-14-130-508-_-Product
or the CO OP edition
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130504&cm_re=evga_gtx_295-_-14-130-504-_-Product
and I am wondering if i were to buy one of these, would i be able to SLI it with the one i already have?

  1. I dont see why not, you could OC or under clock them so they both run @ the same speed.
  2. Sell the one you have and get 2 HD5870s. Your power bill will thank you.
    However the winter months are coming and SLIed GTX 295s will make your PC double well as a space heater... it's your call.

    So how do you under clock them?
  4. My second video card was an overclocked version. I ordered a regular version and it works fine. I just have them running at the same speed as the slowest one because only Crysis and S:CS are the only games that truly stress both GPUs. GTA4 is a beat, but it doesn't use SLI.
  5. The fourth gpu in a 2x295 sli is virtually wasted - quad SLI doesn't scale well.

    The second 295 is virtually wasted unless you are running at 2560. What's your screen res?
  6. So how do you under clock them?[/quote
