Hi all,
I'm looking at adding another 560ti to run in sli. My current card is an Evga 560ti 1gb DS witch factory OC to 900mhz. Would it be best to add the exact same card, or is there another 560ti that might perform better in sli? . Any advice is appreciated.
Win 7 64
Asus p7p55d pro
i7-870
4 gig ddr3
Evga 560 ti
750w 80+ psu

I'm aware that the gpu needs to be the same but my inquiry regards to the different makes/models of the same gpu. I'm not sure if I can pair my exsiting 560ti with one of another brand, clock speed etc.

I never said the informantion you provided was incorrect, I understand I have to pair my current 560ti with another 560ti to run sli. My question relates to the many diffeernt makes and models of the 560ti and what would be best to pair with my current card.

Not strictly true; I've just paired an Asus GTX 560Ti DirectCUII Top (900Mhz) with an Asus GTX 560Ti DirectCUII (828MHz) - and whilst they are pretty well physically identical if you look around the net you will see that you can pair up any two cards as long as they are of the same processor family see this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLvnuA1uhoE
