I just got a 5970 4 gig version and its sweet..I noticed that its not the smallest card and it takes up 2 slots..
I might be able to fit another in there for my eyefinity setup..

if not can I crossfire it with another 5970 2 gig version? I mean I dont see why not, its the same card just additional memory..

thanks

Should work, they use the same Graphics Chipset. Sweeet Graphics cards =D. I got a HD 5870, pretty nice too.

Yes, it should work, no matter what the amount of memory, as long you have 2x HD5970 you could CF it... :) 
Just make sure you have an enough power on your PSU.

You can cf them IMO, tho you will be limited to 1Gb VRAM I would imagine.

Remember, cf uses the lowest VRAM per GPU, ie 1Gb from your "reference" 2Gb card.

Therefore, negating the the 4Gb card performance.
