SLi'ing asus gtx460 with EVGA gtx460 ssc+?

i already have Evga gtx460 ssc 1gb ddr5 and want to sli with another gtx460. someone is selling me ( Asus ENGTX460 DirectCU/2DI/1GD5 ) as there is no other gtx460 available around me. so can i sli these cards without having problems?

    yes , you can go for SLI, just make sure your Power Supply can handle it to don't run into problems.
  2. Yep- good to go. Here's a link to SLI FAQ's- some helpful information that also may answer future questions:

  3. You can SLI those fine, just it both will run at the slowest card's speed. e.g. one card running @ 675Mhz core and another running @ 775Mhz core, when SLI'ed, they will both run @ 675Mhz. That applies for memory, shaders, and RAM too.
  4. Thanks guys! i appreciate your help :)
  5. No problem! Just make sure you pick a best answer so a moderator can know to close the thread. ;)

    Possibly off topic, and sorry if that so, but I keep reading this yet I haven't seen it myself. I had a couple of PNY GTX 560's, one was an OC model at 850MHz the other a OC2 model at 900MHz. According to MSI Afterburner and GPU-Z they were both running at their own speeds, not synced to the slower card (and it didn't matter which one was in the primary slot either).
  7. i had 2x460 Gigabyte one was OC the other SOC they worked at their own speeds if u put a tick to sync them then they will sync to the higher mhz card but there was no problem running each at it's own speed so you are good to go I ran them with 650W Collermaster PSU had no problem what so ever on i7 2600k oc 4.5ghz.
  8. You can read here: http://www.geforce.com/Hardware/Technologies/sli/faq#c18

    that it is possible SLI with different clock speed, no limitations, only when working with different VRAM you will run into this limitations.

    Thanks guts!
    i am now using SLI gpu, one is EVGA GTX 460 SSC+ 1gb DDR5 and the other is MSI GTX 460 Hawk(Talon Attack) 1gb DDR5.
    both are working f9. Just keep three things in mind that in SLI,
    GPU Memory Size, GPU Model Number, and GPU Bit Size Should be same, :) Thats all
