I was wondering if it would be OK to have 2 cards made by different manufacturers in SLI?
I have a BFG 7600GT OC and i was thinking about buying a Point of View 7600GT (not OC) and make use of my SLI motherboard. The thing is i am unsure if they will work properly. The BFG card i have is an OC version, the clocks aren't that much better than stock, 580 instead of 560 and 1450 instead of 1400. I am wondering if this would cause a problem, or would i just have to turn the clocks down a bit on the BFG card or maybe turn the clocks up on the POV card?
Some of you might be thinking, 'just get another BFG card'. To that i would say the BFG card costs over Â£30 more than the POV card and to be honest if i were to start again i wouldn't buy another 7600GT. So the only reason i am considering this is because i can get another 7600GT for just over Â£50, and for that i think it might be worth it.
If anyone has an SLI setup with 2 different manufacturers let me know if you had any problems. And i would ask anyone that has or had 2 7600GT's in SLI, how did they perform compared to one and did you try them with Battlefield 2?
