Default SLI Graphics cards

I know you can SLI two graphics cards that are the same with a different brand name, but can you SLI two cards one being factory overclocked and one not be? im assuming you would have to overclock the one thats not to match the one that is...so would this work or not? thanks

You can SLI two overclocked cards, but realize that in the case of same family-different vendor cards, the lowest common denominator becomes the standard for BOTH cards. The faster card will run itself at the speed, or align itself with the slower one.

So if you overclock the slower one to the same speed as the faster one they'll be fine?

If the slower one is capable of the higher overclock, possibly.
