edit: I looked it up, the 8800 gtx runs a g80 core, while the 8800GT and the 8800GTS run a g92 core. So I think you could do it.
That is very wrong. Don't post information if you're just guessing.

SLI can only be done between 2 of the exact same card. The only differences allowed are different brands but the card has to be exactly the same otherwise.

The one exception is in memory capacity.

a 1gb and 512mb 8800gt for example can be SLi'd, however half the memory on the 1gb card is no longer used.
