Hello all,
 
Been a long time reader of the forum, but this is my first time posting, thus please bear with me...
 
Here is my dilema....
 
I have a GTX 580, which I purchased about a month ago, but since then I've been able to put some money together and now I am looking into getting a second GTX 580, but I found the 580 SC fermi for a better price (about $30 cheaper).....
 
Technically I should not encouter any issues with have the two in SLI since my current 580 will have no problems keeping up with speed of the Ferm.....Just looking some some opinions
 
 
Thank you

    Yes, you can SLI an standard clocked GTX580 and a SC Edition GTX 580. The faster card will downclock to match the slower one. 
     
    Of course you could always try overclocking your standard edition card to match the SC...but unless your benching you won't really see a night and day difference. 

    My computer finds cures for diseases and searches for aliens when I'm not gaming...what does yours do?

    I don't have enough posts to put up links, but if you google "580 vanilla 580sc sli" the first link will take you to a thread on the evga forums that discusses the same topic.

    Thank you for the reply....I thought so, overclocking the vanilla to the fermi clock speed should work....
     
    Thanks again....

    You can overclock the slower card to the SC speed and it will be fine. Clock it to the same speed befor enabling SLI in control panel or in EVGA precision/MSI Afterburner. And you'll be fine.
