I'm considering purchasing a second 7870 GHz Edition for my PC - though I'm also split in the decision to do that or just buy a new single GPU to avoid CrossFire incompatibilities - though the card in my computer is rather scarce. I would like to know if it's okay to mix different brands, like say, an XFX 7870 with a PowerColor 7870. As they both use the same architecture designed by the same company (AMD), I imagine it would be fine so long as the clock speeds are the same to prevent bottlenecking. Is that true?

Using GPUs from different brands is fine as long as they are same model

I even mixed overclocked edition of GPU with a standard one and all was fine, they just ran at the lower clock speed
