Using dual video card on Motherboard: Asus P5ND2-SLI!!
I need a little help to upgrade my PC, as I don't know much about Hardware side.
My motherboard is: 'Asus P5ND2-SLI/Deluxe nForce 4 Skt 775 Dual SLI PCI-E GB-LAN 1394 USB2 8ch.audio SATA/RAID Prescott and Dual-Core compatible ATX'
The video card I already have installed is 'PNY GEFORCE 7800GT 256MB DDR3 PCI-E DUAL DVI/HDTV-out'.
As the motherboard supports dual SLI video card, so I'm wondering does the second video card have to be same or could it be different GEFORCE one, as the one I already have has been discontinued for sale.

I would look through local forum & ebay sales to get the best value, if you buy it new, you will pay too much for the performance increase

I have found few selling on ebay, ofcourse second hand, but they are something like:
* Gainward Bliss 7800GT 512Mb PCX Golden Sample
* Gainward nVidia Graphics card 7800GT PCI-E 512MB 7647
Would these have same chipset as mine one?

Yeah, you would be unable to use all 512mb of the second card. You would likely get better bang for your buck by just grabbing a newer graphics card and selling your old one. 7950GT 512mb would give about the same performance for instance.
That said: I do have a XFX 7800GT 256mb laying around though in its box if you live in the US and really want one.

but he's right, if you have PCI Express, wait around for NVIDIA 8800 GT series and ATI 2950 Pro, those cards are on the $200 region and will offer you twice the performance of the 7800GT, something you won't get from the SLI, which will only work up to 50-60% if most games
