    Question Will these GPU's go together?

    I have recently bought a new pc tower. It has a FX-8350 with a GTX-660 and 10 GB of RAM on a MSI 970 gaming motherboard. I was looking to upgrade my GPU but I was wondering if I can use SLI with a GTX1070 and a GTX660. If so, how do I even do that? Thanks ahead of time.
