    To SLI or Xfire 2 or move video cards they have to be from the same model. In your case you can only SLI 2 8800 gts gpus. It is suggested that they have the same amount of memory and clocks are the same.

    You can not SLI a 8800 gts and GTX 240 or a 480. That will not work.

    Same goes for Xfire you can xfire a 5850 + a 5850 but you can not crossfire a 5850 to a 6850. You could xfire a 5830 and a 5850. At default clocks the 5850 should (act like) a 5830. So you lose performance you would have if they were both 5850's.

    If i understood right ,u can sli gigabyte 8800gts and gainward 8800gts if they are same ddram (640 mb) but slightly difrent clocks ,would it work? Do i need flash gpu bios clocks or somenthing or it would it be just plug and play .

    Another questione ,i have 5970 in my rig ,would gigabyte 8800gts be right card for phsyics ,and how to install second card ,do i need some extra software or drivers for that solutione.


    thx for reply

    Yes they should work fine. I believe you should be able to adjust the clock of the cards separately or together. You could use MSI Afterburner if it supports your cards or Nvidia's drivers may allow you to change the clock rates.

    You should not need to.

    Since you already have the 8800gts you could use it for physics. Google hybird physics. Nvidia does not like you to use a ATi card with their card so you have to use a work around to get physics to work.
