Windows 7: SLI with Geforce GTS 240?

SLI with Geforce GTS 240?

Hi. So after getting this OEM graphics card for my new comp, I am beginning to want to get another card for my PC. However, before all this I didn't think very far ahead as to which graphics card to get as Im running into many problems now. So on the website this card is capable of SLI 2 ways (although on sli website it's not "certified" -.-). But since this is a built-in card, i cannot by an identical one, and i found that i cannot use two cards of different GPUs. So the question is: is there another card that has the same "gpu" that i can buy to work with the OEM gts 240?? or am i screwed?

As far as I know, none of the GeForce GT 200 series are SLI compatible.

Sorry.

There's not a GeForce GTS 240 as far as I'm concerned.

Only GT 240.

There is.
GeForce GTS 240 (OEM Product)
It's a pre-built, it's why not a lot of people know about it.

So... Yeah.

It must be paired with an identical GTS 240.

Yeah i read it. But it's pre-built so i cannot buy another, that's why i asked if there's any alternatives to it but that page also answers my question. But no matter, i found 1 site that sells this pre-built product on sale too. Now my problem becomes if i have a SLI compatible motherboard and the power supply to support it... >.<
