Alright, I already have the MSI R4890 Cyclone OC Radeon HD 4890 1GB.

Do I need to buy the exact same card again or can I buy a different MSI R4890 card and put them in crossfire?

Like, can I mix these 2 together? Same specs...

You can crossfire these two cards. Any clock differences will be be fixed through auto downclocking of the faster card.

The more I'm reading, the more I'm seeing people are mixing cards. So I guess it's not that big a deal to mix up cards... correct?

Nope, not between brands of the same card, anyhow.
