Hi all, I am currently in the process of purchasing parts to build a new gaming desktop.
However, this is my first time and would like to know if these two cards are compatable to run through SLI.
Looking for any help/tips :) 

The desktop build is as follows:

GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H Intel 7 Series Motherboard - ATX, Socket H2 (LGA1155), Intel Z77 Express, 1600MHz DDR3, SATA III (6Gb/s), RAID, 7.1-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0, PCIe 3.0, CrossFireX Ready

Intel Core i5-3570K BX806237i53570K Processor - Quad Core, 6MB L3 Cache, 3.40GHz (3.80GHz Max Turbo), Socket H2 (LGA1155), 77W, Fan, Unlocked, Retail

16 gig Kingston Ram (For starters)

EVGA GeForce GTX 650 01G-P4-2650-KR Video Card

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

No, those cards will not work together. You could get a 7950 though.

You have to run two like cards. So you could do two 650s or two 660s. But honestly if you are going to spend that much money you should just get a single GTX670. You'd then even be able to scale back a little on the power because it is one card. Crossfire/SLI only really makes sense if you already have one card and you get a good deal on the second or you are exceeding the capabilities of the best single card.

7950 is only a little weaker than the 670 for a significant price drop.
