just curious. i know with SLI i have to have the exact same video card to have it work, but my question is, if i have a GIGABYTE 560 TI vid card, can i run SLI with the same 560 TI but from another manufacturer name brand, such as MSI.

i cant seam to find my particular video card. i found it on New Egg but its discontinued. :scream:

Yes I believe so. The card just needs to be the same type not the same brand though I don't know what happens with OC cards.
Though (cost permitting) going for a single more powerful card is better than SLI or XFire.

I have an SLI setup with 2 X EV3A GTX560.
Same brand is not required.
However some people have notice the occasional BIOS glitch.
Based on that finding, I decided to be safe with the same EV3A's...

they dont have to be the same. heck if you wanted to you could SLI a none TI with a TI or you could SLI the 460 with the 560 I have seen this done and it works.

Heck, they don't have to be the same model.

benchmark the single video card then the sli set-up then you will know if it got you anywhere.
when I did the 1 card test then the 2 card test, it dont get twice as good. I got a 66% increase
