Do both cards have to be identical when running in SLI mode? I have an 512 gts and a 320 gts can they be ran in SLI mode? They are both 8800GTS EVGA cards.

No they do not they just have to be the same type Ex. Two 8800 GTX's as long as they are the same series they will work fine they will just run at the slower card speed.

The cards you speak of will not work in SLI together. This is because the 8800GTS 320MB uses the G80 core and the 8800GTS 512MB uses the G92 core. Also, they would need the same amount of RAM. You would need either two 8800GTS 320MBs or two 8800GTS 512MBs to use SLI. However, one 8800GTS 512MB would outperform two 8800GTS 320MBs, so I don't suggest getting another 8800GTS 320MB for that purpose.

STETTYBET0, thanks for the info, I haven't been back here for a little while and you are right, I did a little research myself and came to the same conclusion. But thank you for responding... :)
