    I'm looking at a BFG 9800gtx+ 1gb OC to go with with my galexy GTS 250 1gb...



    Can I flash ether card to be the same as the other to work in SLI?

    Should be no problem, both are G92 cards. One is going to mimic the others clock if they are not the same.

    They should work together since they, like bogmali said, run off the same chip. As for flashing a BIOS for one to the other....it's a risky chance.

    I was lucky that a faulty BFG GTX 285 they sent me to replace a bad GTX 280 was able to be flashed to a GTX 280. I run a GTX 280 and GTX 285 (flashed to the same GTX 280 BIOS) in SLI. It was pretty much my only option I could do with the card since BFG shut doors and went out of business.

    If it does come down to flashing, best of luck. Hopefully you don't need to.
