I'm fairly certain you can mix-match different model cards ( I.E. 6850 and a 6870 ) but don't quote me. You cannot however mix and match NVidia and ATi

You CAN mix and match cards. I'm doing it right now with a 5870 and a 460. You just can't use the nvida card as a phsyx card for gaming while doing so.
