As long as they are both GTX 580's you can SLI them. As for the SLI bridge, it should be in the same place, but if it isn't, use a flexable one it won't hurt it if you bend it a bit.

I would assume so, as the sli ports are in the front http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/4/45617/1698010-27002.jpg

It would run at the same speed as the lowest clocking 580 with everything though.

You Cannot use them is Sli if they arent exactly the same Length! I mean it has to be down to the mm the same size otherwise it wont work!~ Joke yes of course you can.

All Nvidia cards have the SLI connectors the same distance from the back plate. Some even have two (for tri SLI) no doubt it will work.
