Are these 5770s identical enough for Crossfire?

I already have one of these:

And I'd like another, but that exact model is hard to find outside of eBay.

I can easily get this one:

Are the the same cards with different packaging?

The difference is the cooler. The core is the same.

You dont need to match up the exact model, as long as they are both 5770s you wont have a problem.

If one is factory overclocked, they will both work at the slower clock speed. Fortunately all 5770s seem to be 1GB of 128bit GDDR5 RAM so there shouldnt be any problems. The same cant be said of all graphics card models.

You can even use a HD5750, it just scales to the slowest card.
