Default SLI Cards

I went to buy another gtx 285 but it seems to be deactivated, so, my question is, will these 2 cards be fine in sli? I've looked them over and see no differences, unless I missed them.

What I have (deactivated): - EVGA 01G-P3-1285-AR GeForce GTX 285 SC Edition 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Want to buy for SLI: - EVGA 01G-P3-1181-AR GeForce GTX 285 Superclocked Edition 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Yes it will work just fine. You can even get one from a different manafacturer (just if you were wondering). Id recommend that one anyway.

yea...clock speeds would be the only issue. I even have a 65nm and a 55nm in SLI and they work fine.
