    Question SLI workable on two different MSI video card models?

    Hi Gang! I have an MSI Twin Frozer 2GB GTX680 Video card that I am quite happy with. I want to now run an SLI combination but find that that particular video card is not available. Can I use another model of MSI 2GB GTX680 card with the one I have in SLI Mode instead? Or does it need to be a matched pair of cards? Sorry to bother with something that I really should know but I'm not sure about it at all.
    Thanks in advance for any answers!

    Thanks Richard. I suspected as much but I've been known to be wrong before. Have a good one!

    As long as both video cards have the same gpu and have the same amount of memory SLI should work.
