Can I Crossfire My "Diamond AMD Radeon HD 6970" and a "Sapphire Radeon HD 6970"??

Hi, I know this might be a stupid question seeing as how they are basically the same thing
(except the price, which is a difference of about 150 bucks), but I was wondering if I'd be ok buying a "Sapphire Radeon Hd 6970" and crossfiring it with my current "Diamond AMD Radeon HD 6970?? The Diamond edition is kinda hard to find for a good price, so I figured I'd see if I could buy a Sapphire for about $100 and stick it in there. As far as I know (cause I'm noob status ova hea) the Clock speeds, Mem speeds and everything else is basically the same....

Thanks a bunch

    Yes, there should be no issue as long as they both work OK by themselves. You will probably want to uninstall the gfx driver/re-install it when both cards are in place. What MB will these be going into?
