Hi, I am new at the world of the pc gamin, Im the owner of a gtx 960, its of 2 gb of ddr5 ram, and on amazon I saw a gtx 960 with 4 gb of ddr5 ram, my question is:
Can I SLI my 960 with the 960 of 4 gb from EVGA?
 


At one time it use to be allowed. The card with the 4GB of GDDR5 would only utilize 2 GB out of the 4 GB. NVIDIA disabled that capability with the GeForce GTX 6xx series and later.

Your motherboard also needs to be able to support 2-way SLI mode. The motherboard package should have included an SLI bridge connector if it is able to support SLI mode.

Your power supply unit also needs to have enough capacity and sufficient number and types PCI Express supplementary power connectors for the second card.

whats wrong with 960 sli? i see nothing wrong with it. two 960's are better than a 970 and as good as a 980 so uhhh....whenever frys or newegg , microcenter has the new msi 970a krait edition mobo, i will buy one cause as of right now thats the only amd board that shows its compatible with the new nvidia gpus in sli or single. i have a gtx 960 already,why would i spend 350 to get a 970 when 200 bucks gets me another 960 and better performance than a 970? i dont care about 1 card being 5 degrees hotter than the other or having limited space in your cpu case. im going for that enthusiast build baby!

2-Way SLI GTX 960 is not better than one GTX 970. Especially not GTX 980.

You will limit yourself with a 128-bit memory bus and 2GB VRAM. Pointless for SLI.

Meanwhile one GTX 970 has 3.5+0.5GB of VRAM.

Ofcourse GTX 960 SLI is not better. It's more expensive and a waste of money.

it is better than a 970.go look at some benchmarks,plus they do have the 4 gig version of this card and it is overpriced in my opinion .
