SLI: Virtually Reduce VRAM Size For SLI

i have one gtx 550ti which is 1 GB. now i Am getting second one .the card with 1 Gb Vram is more costlier then a 1.5GB one . so if i go for the 1.5 GB card , i'm sure i won't be able to SLI it. Can i anyhow do SLI with one 1 GB card and other 1.5 GB card ? HOW

  1. If you you have a 1GB card now there is no point in getting a 1.5GB card, just get another 1GB to run in SLi with it.

    @pratmodi,

    As I know, the system will just automatically use the 1.0GB out of the 1.5GB VRAM of the newer card & you do not need to do anything.

    I know but the 1.5GB card is not a reference design and their as seems to be a rise in the amount of people having issues with SLi'ing cards that have different amounts of RAM it seems even more pointless than ever to buy into potential compatibility issues. For what reason is the 1.5GB so much cheaper?
