Need Advice Upgrading to SLI on 580GTX

Hello,

I will be upgrading to an SLI setup and need some advice. My current system build is:

CPU: INTEL 2600K @3.4GHZ
CPU Cooling: CORSAIR H70
MOBO: ASUS Maximus IV Extreme (Rev3.0)
MEMORY: GSKILL 4x16GB
HD: WESTERN DIGITAL Velociraptor 300GB 10K RPM
DRIVE1: LG Blu-ray
DRIVE2: HP DVD Lightscribe
PSU: CORSAIR 1200AX
CASE: 800D
AUDIO: BOSE Cinemate II
VIDEO: PANASONIC UV 50
GRAPHICS: PNY 580GTX 1.5GB

I also purchased an ASUS SLI bridge which I should get soon. I was wondering if it made any difference if I bought a different brand of 580GTX or if it's better to use the same PNY that I have. Is there any performance difference? I know it won't matter upgrading to a 3GB 580GTX unless I can go above 1080P. Is there anything that I need to watch out for in the second 580GTX?

  1. It doesn't matter, the card will clock itself down to the other card to match speeds. Get which ever one you want!
