Crossfire with Different Manufacturers

So they've apparently discontinued my graphics card, the GIGABYTE Radeon 5850 (GV-R585D5-1GD-B), but I heard from someone that you can crossfire the 5850 with one from another manufacturer (eg HIS). Does anyone have any conformation on this? If so, is there a specific guideline I should follow?

My gut is telling me that they won't work, and if they do only a select few would.

EDIT: 5850 in Question

Different manufacturer's are OK. More guidelines here:

It's fine, don't worry about that, you can use different brand as long as the card type is the same (in this case HD5850). :)

You should be fine. BTW, it's brand names, not manufactures.

There are only a handful of manufactures (OEM) out there; one of them is PC Partners and it is the parent company of Sapphire. These OEMs manufacture video cards and slaps brand name stickers on them.

Damn, it can't edit. It should be "manufacturers"...
