Yes Sli is sli. As long as you have a sli motherboard why wouldnt it work?

It is better to get the cards at the same time if you wanted sli. Sometimes they go out of stock etc.. you have to get the exact same one also if you want sli. Same make, same company that puts it together.

You need to make shure though that you get a good quality power supply that is sli compatable. What that means is that it has the pci express adapters already on the power supply.

Yeah i quite possibly will get them both at the same time.

My friend owns a computer store and he orders from newegg so i'm probably going to get them both at the same time.

Yes i know my friend has it covered i'm also going with a 1mb cache processor and a 16mb of cache hard drive.
It's covered i'm not worried my friend knows what i want to do with it.

My friend that owns the computer store and my other 2 friends that work for him and I are competing to see how fast we all max out our computers.

So this is gonna be a good competition.

This is the closest thing I could find.

This is the xfx 6800gs against the step above the x1600pro which is the x1600xt.

XFX 6800gs vs the x1600XT!

It even owned the x1600XT of course....
