You should be able to mine with different cards, but you will need linux for 5 or more cards.

Ignore the man. 11.6b drivers or later allow for up to 8gpus. Linux is the same way, its a driver limitation, not an os one.

Yes.

There can be some mobo limitations, but I have several mixed rigs, including a HD5xxx/HD4xxx/Nvidia triple combo.

As people already mentioned.. Yes you can, as long as you have enough pci ports, and you have enough space, if putting more than 2 cards in there - its always good to watch between spacing of pci slots.
