My System Specs


I would say that it is very unlikely the 2GB version will work, the other versions will work despite Clock speeds (thats the only difference with those versions)....if yuor slowest Clock speed Card will not OC to the same speed as the highest Clcoked Card (and remain stable), you'll have to downclock the highest Clcoked Card to the highest stable Clcoks speed of the other card....make sense?
Your SLI is as only as powerful as your weakest Card (highest stable clocks).
Take your lowest Clcoked Card and ensre it will match the clock speeds of your highest Clcoked Card..if so...set em and enjoy!

chilly...I'm sippin a beer...let me know if the above makes sense ;)
