I think both cards must have the same GPU. I have one computer with Crossfire and one SLI, but in both computers the video cards are identical.

Why not just get one better card?
Or is it necessary for two good cards in there, or can you get one very good card?

I would recommend just getting a single powerful card.

And Spec all they have to do is have the Same chipset, they don't have to be the same brand.

Well your not going to have two cards that are great running in sli with that price range so you might as well just buy one good card at the moment..then save up later and sli the exact same card sometime later..idk
