Quote:
Can I mix and match graphics cards?
In order to provide optimal symmetric scaling, SLI technology requires the NVIDIA GPUs to match. For example, a GeForce 7800 GTX must be paired with another GeForce 7800 GTX. Likewise, a GeForce 6600 GT must be paired with another GeForce 6600 GT. However, using the latest Release 80 or later graphics drivers, NVIDIA GPUs sold by different manufacturers can be used together in an SLI configuration. For example, a GeForce 7800 GT from vendor ABC can be matched with a GeForce 7800 GT from vendor XYZ.

You can use any other 6800GS with the one he has in SLI, so you don't need an identical one.

Yea but no other car has the exact same overclock. Of course any other card could be overclocked as far but he wants the exact same card. He will trade me something if I can find and buy him another one of the same cards (which would be a **** of a deal for me).

Know anyplace that sells them refurbished?

this is all I could find., but it is in Australia (Australian dollars too).

It does not matter whether the two cards have the same frequencies, just the same GPU. If he really wants an identical card, the best he can do is just keep an eye on ebay, craigslist or some other ebay-like site.

This is as close as I could find. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...Tab=2&NoMapp=0
