Not possible. You are using 2 different PCB's that have different components on each. In order for SLI to work you would have to have the same model of GPU, ie 460 -> 460.

You can't SLI different type of cards.
Was never possible, and will most likely, never will.

Unless you have a motherboard with hydra lucid on it.
With the lucid chip, you can do SLI/CFX with almost every card.

If you're looking to SLI, Just get the same kind of card. Even if your motherboard does allow to SLI with different cards, its often a fail lol.

sell both, get 2x460? XD
post #7 of 10
Yeah, just get two 460's. They are still some of the best value.

Don't bother with the Lucid boards, they don't improve on regular SLi.

This is taken from the (rather old) nVidia SLI FAQ on slizone.com:

Can I mix and match graphics cards that have different GPUs?
No. For example, an XXXGT cannot be paired with a XXXGTX in an SLI configuration.

Can I mix and match graphics cards from different manufacturers?
Using 180 or later graphics drivers, NVIDIA graphics cards from different manufacturers can be used together in an SLI configuration. For example, a GeForce XXXGT from manufacturer ABC can be matched with a GeForce XXXGT from manufacturer XYZ.

Can I mix and match graphics cards is one of them is overclocked by the manufacturer?
Yes. A GeForce XXXX GTX that is overclocked can be mixed with a standard clocked GeForce XXXX GTX.
