No. You cant mix Nvidia and AMD cards for Crossfire/SLI

SLI (Nvidia): must be same GPU
Crossfire (AMD): Same GPU family

I can't really say if it is or isn't but I'm thinking about doing a setup like that at some point. Its just one of those things you either try at your own risk or ask around the community.

It would only matter in games that make really extensive use of PhysX, which you could probably count on one hand. In those games it would allow you to turn up PhysX details without a performance loss (since the GTX 560 is then a dedicated PhysX processor). It would be a worthless waste of electricity otherwise. If you haven't bought the 560 yet, I say don't even worry about it.
