I dont think the issue is the different brands, its the memory sizes that matter. Dont think you can do a 768mb gtx 460 with a 1GB gtx 460.

You can't they have to be the same all round.

the memory configuration of them is different (192-bit for the 768MB version, 256-bit for the 1024MB version).

No. They're different cards, different memory/shaders etc.
