560 Ti's DS SC.. are these 2 SLi'able?

So a buddy has a GTX 560 Ti DS (factory superclocked) model # 01G-P3-1567-KR

on newegg they have a refurb of what seems to be similar..

01G-P3-1567-RX


i havent been able to find anything about whether these two would be SLi'able because my friend said when the 660s drop he'd let me have his 560 to SLi if i grabbed one now.

so.. can 01G-P3-1567-KR and 01G-P3-1567-RX be SLi'd? what do the last two digits mean anyways?


Thanks!!

    So they seem almost exactly the same, they should SLI.
  2. As long as the memory size and series are the same - SLI will work. Just make sure
    your mobo, case & PSU are up to the task. SLI requires more PSU capacity, generates more heat,
    and make sure your pcie slots are x8 min. When I SLIed my GTX460 I put a fan blowing sideways at the cards. When I upgrade my case I will be looking for one with side fan capability.

  4. Thanks for the help guys! I really appreciate it!

    I'm waiting on my i7-3770k to come out and my build's done (other than gfx card which i've been waffling on)

    but i've got:

    mobo: GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 -- it's got pcie x16, x8, and x4 for SLi capabilities so i'm set there.
    cpu: i7-3770k (3 more weeks!)
    gfx cards: eVGA GTX 560 Ti DS SC? (1 for now, SLi in near future)
    PSU: Corsair TX 850w
    case: NZXT Guardian
    Ram: mushkin 2x4 gb
    cooler: coolermaster hyper n520 (& mx4 paste)
    SSD: ocz agility 3 120gb
    HDD: 1TB seagate barracuda


    my goal is ~4.5ish with this setup, pretty budget friendly build i think i'm in about 5-600 so far, cpu still to be bought & graphics card too.


    food for thought: since i can get that card for ~$215, is it better to grab that and SLi 2 of em (one will be free)

    OR

    wait it out and run SLi'd legacy 8800 GT alphadog's (was my original plan) until 660's come around in your opinions?
  5. Well, if 8800 GTs can satisfy you with their performance, you should wait. It shouldn't be long until 660s show up - I bet they will launch at the same time as Ivy bridge CPUs. Note: they will be a bit more expensive than 560 Ti's are today: my guess is $300.
  6. would 2 560 Ti's be better performance-wise than 1 660 Ti or maybe not Ti thougH?
  7. Yes, two GTX 560 Ti's will most certainly have better performance. They are close to GTX 680.
