    Basically, I want to ask if I have two GTX 560 cards, but one is Asus, and the other one EVGA.

    Can I use SLI with them?

    No,SLI only works with same brand cards and even then,most games don't benefit from SLI.

    SLI doesn't need same brands, just same gpu, same clocks and same video memory etc

    Where in the world do you have that from?

    YES, you can sli them, as long as your motherboard supports it.
    CORE CLOCKS, or MANUFACTURER doesn't matter, as long as it is the same CARD MODEL (Like yours).

    So it is OK to SLI different cooler manufacturers' cards, but they have to have the same amount of VRAM?

    If I'm not mistaken, you can SLI them but you will be limited to the VRAM from the card that has less.
