Thread Starter 
i have a gigabyte geforce 7600gs could i pair this 7600gs with a 7600gs from another company???

Yes, as long as they both have the same type/amount of memory.

(IE 256MB GDDR3 7600GS won't work with a 512MB GDDR2 7600GS)

Yes Brand names wont affect it...Its only if the cards where different models. I also beleive Each card will run at there own individual clocks also.

and the same gpu/ram frequencies

The main big thing to match is the type of memory used such as GDDR2/3..Both cards muct have the same version.

Yup, multi-vendor support was added in a driver release shortly after SLI debuted. One correction though. When SLI is enabled the speeds of the faster card will be reduced to that of the slowest card. Because of this you can have two different cards that run at different frequencies.

They can be different company, different amount of RAM, and different clock speeds. Only if you run SLI, both cards will run at the slowest spec of the two

Oh right . Well i know that with CF atleast that each card will just run at its own speeds.
