SLI: My MSI 560 TI (OC'd 1000/2000) & A PNY GTX560 TXPB-OC-BDL

So I have a GD70 Mobo, getting ready to install the SLI Hack... Today I am able to grab my new 900 watt modular PSU, my new case with better fans and cooling... and I purchased an SLI connector for the two cards.. if I go out today as intended the only 560 Ti I can get is the PNY brand.. I have my Lovely MSI (love the 2 fans and 2 heatsinks) How will these specs mesh?

The MSI was stock 880 core 1760 Shaders that I used Afterburner to get to a stable 1000/2000... The Effective Memory Clock 4200MHz

What worries me about the PNY is...
The effect memory clock is 4104MHz
The stock core is 850, and the stock shaders are 1700MHz

30 difference on the stock core, and a 106 difference on the memory clock.. I want to have both cards at 1000/2000... and If I remember correctly the Effective Memory Clock has an impairment on the SLI performance.

Correct me if I'm wrong. I don't want to go out and spend all the money and end up flat.. I have a crossfire board thus the SLI hack will be in place... MSI FXAGD70 is the board.. MSI 560 Ti already installed PNY 560 Ti would be the 2nd card for being SLI'd....

Let me know thoughts...

Well you will have to see whats the max stable oc of the PNY. The cards will work at the clocks of the "primary" card, the one at the top.

So if u put msi on 1st pci-e and pny on the second, pny card will automatically clock to msi's specs. But if its unstable you will have to downclock both.
I talked alot , just test the pny on its own and see where u can reach max oc with it, and put both cards and clock them depending on the lowest clocked card. you might not get 1000mhz in sli...:s
