GTX 460 SLI Question

I built a rig earlier in the year and I'm wanting to finish what I started. I play many different games. My main game has been Rift recently but I will be switching to SW:TOR when it comes out. I will be playing MW3 and BF3 on this computer as well. I am looking into upgrading my graphics card situation (which isnt bad imo) but I'm not sure what to do at this point.

I purchased http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121389 this card originally. I am unable to find this same card to SLI.

What I would like to know is can I use the new version of this card to SLI with this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121420 This is the "V2" version of the card. It all looks the same to me, but I'm sure I've probably missed something. If I cant use this card, would it be better to buy 2 more gtx 460 cards, a different branded gtx 460 card, or a new/better card alltogether?

Thanks in advance!

Probably not tbh. I purchased this power supply as kind of a placeholder because it was a very good deal at the time. (my previous PSU was acting up and I didnt want to use it in the new machine and I was on a budget at the time yada-yada). http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341041

Rest of my rig as follows

Mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131482
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115215
RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277 4gb with 4 more on the way thanks to a sale at newegg. :D 
HDD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181 Cheap option at the time. Would like to upgrade eventually.
Also ordered a Hyper 212 so I can play a little more and feel comfy while doing it.

Nice. I was unsure about that due to the fact that this will be my first SLI configuration. I'm an enthusiast, so to speak, but I've never really tried SLI, due to not really needing it.
