Sli cards

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
apologies if this has been covered before i searched, but theres 700zillion pages lol

ive got a 2nd pc, with an sli board, on this i have an evga 7900gt ko superclocked ( 580mhz/790mhz) 512mb card
i have recently come into a 7900gto 512mb (650mhz/660mhz)

now my question is can i sli the two? there the same g70 gpu so from what ive read it should be ok, but iw as wondering if i would have to either clock the evga higher or lower the gto to match?

cheers

The GTO would down clock to the gt if you put it in the bottom slot and use the GT in the main slot. I know that for sure. But it might default to the slower one anyways no matter the position..

I don't think so. They are similar architecture but different bios.

You cannot pair a 7900GT with a 7900GTO.

No. Both cards that are to be run in SLi must have matching GPU’s. For example, a 8800GTX cannot be paired with a 8800GTS. Likewise, a GeForce 6600GT must be paired with another 6600GT.
