Default 8800gt ?

I put a Evga 8800GT Superclocked in a new build as you all know. I had some issues with the card, so I went ahead and bought a ASUS 1 off of Newegg. I then got my card fixed, and it's too late to cancel that order. Can these 2 cards run under sli? I'm guessing no since they are 2 differnt brands. If not, I'm stuck with 2 8800GT's

Thats fine, but make sure the clock and memory speeds are the same, or they will run together at the lower clock speed.

Will this PSU be sufficient with 2 8800GT's in SLI? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...corsair%2b620W

Its definitely enough wattage, but try to wait for a second opinion as well.
I don't wanna misinform you as I haven't run those cards in SLI, but a bit of research on Google shows that you'd be good with that wattage.

Thank you, anyone else?
Did some research and it said a 450W recommended for sli for these babies. I have all the 12v rails available, so you think I'll be good?

That PSU will run 2 8800GTs easily. It's a very, very good PSU.

3 18A 12V rails, oh yeah, you'll be able to run 2 8800's just fine and dandy.
