Default I have one superclocked edition and one not GPU

I have the 1st link GPU but in the superclocked edition. If I got the regular one can you SLI a superclocked card and one not together?

Yes. An 8800GT that is overclocked can be mixed with a standard clocked 8800GT in SLI.

Ok, so it definitely overclocks the lower one and doesn't underclock the higher one? If so that is very good to know I was wondering the same thing as the OP bc I have a 9800 GTX+ Superclocked, and I was thinking of doing SLI. The problem is that newegg doesn't carry that one anymore but they do have the 9800 GTX+ standard still. And what happened to all the nvidia cards? Newegg took a ton off that they used to sell; there aren't many 260's or 280's or anything anymore. I was really confused lol.

By auto it will downclock the OC'ed card, but you can overclock the slower card manually if you want to.

I've heard varying stories about how they clock in SLI. I have read that if you put the OC'd card in the primary slot, the card in the secondary slot will be adjusted to match the primary card's speed.

Interesting. Well I'll probably just go ahead and get the other 9800 gtx+ and see how it goes. It's good to know that they will do SLI, I was hoping they would.
