No point....the price difference isnt worth the minimal performance increase.
You had 8800GTX's before right?? Same thing...much better priced than the ultras were.

Same core same size card, but different bios and shader count. If they had the same amount of shaders, it would work well. Problem is that both cards would be running at 196 shader performance, so it would be a waste.
If it were just different clocks, then sure it wouldnt matter.
But thats like trying to SLI an 8800GTS 512 and a 8800GT, both same core but 128 and 112 shaders.
Even the 9800GTX and 8800GTS 512 wont SLI...and they both have 128 shaders. Now 9800GTX and 9800GTX+ will...cause the only difference is the clocks and the process.
