I don't think they ever made a 260 with 3gb ram, but so long as you have 2 of the same cards (doesn't matter who makes it: EVGA, BFG, XFX, MSI, Zotac, etc.), so like, a 2 GTX 460's could SLI or 2/3 580's
but remember that you need a motherboard that supports SLI, or it won't work either.

ok im not any where near my pc but when i get there i can check i know its a hi end evga mother board but other than that I do not know what it is exactly now i do have a evga gtx 260 which costs $300+ and is out of my budget I would love to try to find something that is good and has allot of power because i am wanting to runs SLI on 3 monitors and have 2 more monitors off to the side for other things like itunes winamp xfire vent and other background applications so there will be a total of 5 monitors but only 3 using SLI

I currently have an EVGA GTX 550 Ti and I do not like it at all. When playing games that can have higher FPS like minecraft it makes an high-pitched noise that is driving me crazy. In fact, I just placed an order for the EVGA GTX 460 SE SC for two reasons: 1) My friend has it and he has no such problem with it and 2) It was $99 after a $30 mail-in rebate. I don't recommend the 550.
