They'll run in SLI just fine. You could probably bring the card up to 675 because it is a pretty small OC, but you won't know until you get it.

you should be just fine i run 2 280 gtx's in sli one is bone stock and the other is the oc version. i use msi afterburner for oc'ing, will set both cards the same. i dont see any harm in diff clock speeds, the faster one will prolly be downclocked to match the slower one.
