Gtx 460 with a gtx 260 in sli

Anyone know if its possible to do a gtx460 with a gtx260 in sli? If so what type of modifications would i have to do? What sort of performance increase would i be looking at? Would the performance decrease from just a stand gtx460? Any sort of info would be of great use.

  1. Not possible! Cards have to be the same (GPU) for SLI, only allows for difference in memory size and clock speed.
  2. The cards have to be in the same family, but more importantly they have to be like brother/ sister kind of thing. 4xx wont mix with 2xx
    48x wont mix with 46x
    but a 46x 1gb can mix with a 46x 768mb card
    Make sense?

    And stickers on the HSF (GTS250/9800GTX/+). [:mousemonkey]

    You've been watching Jerry Springer again haven't you? And the 768 will not SLi with a 1 GB version.
  5. Lols. The simple answer is no. Sli requires that both cards have the same gpu core with the only exceptions is configuration. You can soft mod some cards for sli but only of the same family and in your case it isn't possible at all. Common sense hello.

    After seeing some of the OP's other posts it's fair to say that sense is not all that common.
  7. OK fair enough now i know.

    Now you just need to learn a bit about drivers.
  9. Thanks for correcting my misinformation mousemonkey!

    No worries, for some other cards you would have been correct but the 460's, GTS250's and some 7800GTX's go against that rule.
