I'm not sure how much more I need to elaborate, but anyway I have two graphics cards: one 8800GTX and one 9600GT. Can I SLI them together?

Is there an online tool that tells you what goes together?

Or do they always have to be the same model?

As far as I can garner they can be different manufacturers, but not sure about the rest.

No that will not work, the GPU must be the same.

From their FAQ:

Can I mix and match graphics cards that have different GPUs?
No. For example, an XXXGT cannot be paired with a XXXGTX in an SLI configuration.
