When u install the new card, windows will want u to install the drivers for it, thats it, u shudnt have to mess around with the other card. Have fun with SLI, a lot of games r a pain in the butt with it but when it works its nice

i know, still have to pick one of those up, does it matter what kind i get?, i don't remember how many pipelines my current card has, will that make a different if the pipelines are not the same? is there a way to check? i was looking at getting this one , and does everything have to be perfect or is it just the mb have to be the same?
A final thing, do i need a sli power supply?

i thought with clock speed, it didn't matter and it would clock down to the lowest speed.
