Cross Fire with two different cards?

I got an HIS 2GB 6950 about 4 or 5 months ago. I am thinking about cross firing but the card I bought isn't sold on newegg anymore. Is it ok to cross fire with say an XFX 6950?

Also while I am asking questions:

I am in the market for a new laptop for college this fall. Should I ago ahead and buy one now or wait for Ivy Bridge to come out?

  1. I think it doesn't matter what brand the cards are. Deep down they're both the same.
    I think you should wait for Ivy Bridge. Maybe it will not be worth the extra price but when it comes out prices on Sandy Bridge will drop so you could get a better deal
  2. As long as the two cards share the same model number (in this case HD6950), you can use them in Crossfire. In some cases, they do not even need to be the same model. In your case, the HD6950 can be used in Crossfire with the HD6990, HD6970, or HD6950. Note that any card greater than the HD6950 will down-clock to HD6950 speeds.

    As for your new laptop, wait until Fall to see what's available.
