ddr3 and ddr2 = compatible for SLI?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've got an 8600gt 512mb ddr3 card. If I order a 8600gt 512mb DDR2 card, should I be okay going SLI? Seems the DDR3 card is deactivated on newegg.

I know it's okay as long as they're the same series but not sure about the ram speed. Also, where can I get SLI bridges?

Exactly. Buying a SLI mobo + 2 9-series video cards would be close to the price of a 4870x2.

Even a single 8800GT or 9600 GT will blow 2 8600GTs out of the water. And my GTX 260 is about equal to my 2 8800GTs and still less than $300...
