Are these graphic cards compatible?

Right now I have a 1080 Seahawk X.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01H263V0U/ref=psdcmw_284822_t2_B01LHYIFE0


I’m wanting to grab this possibly if they work together. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01LHYIFE0/ref=psdcmw_284822_t1_B01H263V0U?th=1&psc=1

I seen earlier it said that the EVGA would just lower its base speed to match the Seahawk. Just want some valid clarification or if I could OC my seahawk X to match the evga if possible. Any tips to OCing would be awesome. Thanks guys!

Ps- which bridge would I need to SLI them together?

  1. Those two cards should work in sli just fine. The faster card will just lower its speed to match the lower clocked card. There are a ton of guides out there that can help you out with overclocking, just a google search away.
    Make sure your motherboard supports sli and use the included sli bridge to bridge the two cards together. Different motherboards have different spacing between their pcie slots so the included bridge is your best bet. In case you don't have the bridge for some reason, you can count or measure the spacing between your pcie slots and buy a bridge with the correct spacing. Or you can buy a flexible sli bridge.

    Im having to buy a Asus - STRIX Z270-E GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard that way it can SLI Nvidia. Other than that, i was wondering because it wont allow me to pick two separate GPU's in my PCPARTPICKER. My current mobo only accepts crossfiring.

    I wouldnt have to use a Nvidia bridge?

  3. If your current mobo only accepts crossfire, then you do indeed need a mobo that supports SLI, and yes you need a bridge.

    Sorry for the late reply. I know my current mobo will not accept both cards due to crossfire.
    I was more concerned about buying a different brand of a 1080 model and it not being able to work with my Seahawk I currently use.

    I am getting a new mobo that will support SLI. Along with that, was my next question of would I need to order a bridge from Nvidia's site or will a new mobo come with a bridge of its own?
    Sorry for such silly questions! Just would hate to spend a large amount of money for nothing and have to deal with returning things.
