You have to have the same chipset but it can be a different brand of card.

Ex:
EVGA 295
XFX 295

Those combinations are ok but you cant combine in SLI a different level of card. This doesnt work. Sorry...

If you are planning to use the 275 for physX, then yes. SLI-NO.
Even if you are planning to use it for physx, it would be a waste of money. Get a 9800GT instead and you wont notice a differnece in performance as far as physX is concerned.

No.
SLI is fussier than Crossfire about which cards can be combined: The closer to identical the fewer problems you are likely to encounter.
Do n't bother with a PhysX card: Dual GTX275s' have more than enough power to run rendering and PhysX without the complication of adding a third card.

I am not even sure it would be possible to triSLI the GTX 295, I thought SLI and CF are limited to 4 GPUs'?

The 295s I have seen are only for 2 cards as they are dual gpu cards and is considered a quad SLI.

295 = Sli / 295x2 = quad Sli
