Thread Starter 
Hey guys... Sorry if this is a stupid question but I've never heard of doing this or seen it but is it possible to sli and 580 and 570 both super clocked editions? Or just Any 2 types of cards? My plan was to maybe to my 580 SC and get a 570 SC and Juat run them together but idk if that's very smart.

No, unless you have a lucid hydra chip - even then it doesn't work all that well, and it will be just about equal to SLI 570's

AMD allows for two different cards of the same series to be used together (i.e. 6970 with a 6950) but again even with that it would be limited to the lowest one (aka crossfire 6950's)

I'm not sure why you would buy a 580SC and then want to run it with a 570, just get SLI 570's as they should be plenty of power, or if you already have the 580, just wait until you have the $$ for another 580 (you can use any brand of 580 so just find the cheapest one)

Nope. And if it's possible via some hack, it almost certainly isn't worth the effort.
