Question SLI worthy?

Hi guys, I just bought a evga 550 ti fpb 551mhz to replace my ole 9500GT and was wondering if it would be worth SLI'ing the two or would the 9500 hold the 550 back? not sure how that works. Otherwise i'll just box up the 9500 to throw back its box to retire. Thanks in advance.

They couldn't be SLI'd even if you wanted to. Have to have the same cores. Even IF you could, it would work horribly. Box it up.

Can't do it. You wouldn't want to.
