Hello,

I just bought one of these from Microcenter and I was wondering now that they don't have anymore can I still SLI the 2560 version of GTX 570 with a 1.2gb version of gtx 570 or does it have to be the exact same everything?

You can but you will be stock at 1.2gb (you wont use the 2g of the other card it will be blocked at 1.2).

So basicaly I'm not sure why you would do this. You card will be bottlenecked by your Vram.

This video show it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HcIaJtpCsU

Going 2way sli you might suffer from micro sttureing in some games and you Vram will prevent you to use the full power of both card. If you had it for realy cheap it might worth it otherwise you'd bether be selling both and get a 7000s or a 600s GPU IMO.

venur is right, if you want another 2GB card, check ebay!. ebay has every card ever made online.... but by the time you get that other 570 you could have sold your 570 and saved up to buy a 670. unless your running more than 1-2 monitors... a 670 is gonna be killer

So basically if I got a 1.2 with a 2.5 it would automatically bottleneck to 1.2 no matter what correct? If I got both 2.5 gb version of gtx 570's would that be good?

Btw I've only had the car for about 2 days I'm still well within the 30 day return policy to get my money back. I paid $339.99 at microcenter for the Nvidia GTX 570 HD 2.5gb card.

yes the 2.5g one wil be caped at 1.2 if you run it in sli with a 1.2g version.

2x 570,s 2.5g wouldn't bad but 1 GPU of the same price would have about the same performance,be more stable, less heat, less power consumption and bether support (sli have bugs that single card don't and they take more time to fix those problems).
