Hello! my name is Arnor and I am new here at tomshardware! :) 

I own a Gigabyte GTX 560 non-ti and I was wondering if I could use another card and use SLI, same brand, Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti card? or do I have to have both cards TI?

I am gonna overclock them, and what power supple do I need for that?




But there is a problem! My motherboard only supports Cross-Fire...... :fou: 

But I may have found a solution for that! with this tool here: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=241499...

Do you think this is possible?

You can't have a 560 and a 560ti SLI unfortunately, you need the same GPU to do that. A good 700W would do you fine if you SLI a 560TI and overclock it.

I also strongly recommend getting a 2GB 560 Ti, as its capabilities in SLI to run games fantastically at high settings are very very held back by its limited video ram. No point running two cards that can handle ultra BF3, if their video ram hold them back. Thats half the issue in which people who SLI 570's and 580's are slightly restrained, the have the power to blast through games, but not the ram.

I don't know anything about that program you want to use, sorry.

In theory you think it would work as they are technically the same chip, just different model name. Unfortunately it doesn't. Also I would just get a new Mobo. I wouldn't trust a hack to make something work on an setup like that.
