Yes, you can easily crossfire an HD5970 with an HD5870. Just make sure that you raise the clockspeeds of your HD5970 to HD5870 levels to match them nicely.

Yes, 3x Crossfire on the 890FX switches to 8x mode, which will NOT bottleneck any cards today. An HD5870 + HD 5970 will not activate 8x/8x, as the HD5970 is CF on one card.

2x HD5870 do 16x/16x, correct. 1xHD5970 + 1x HD5870 also do 16x/16.

Yes you can crossfire them. There may be some issues if you want to use eyefinity though.

The only issue is with QuadFire IIRC.
