Default CrossFire question...

I have a XFX HD 5870 XxX edition card at the moment, i want to throw in a second one the get more power.
Now i cant find this particular card anywhere anymore. Can i add a differint version of the HD 5870 to make it work, is this compatible?

Have they fixed the cards ware you no longer need the exact same 2 cards to get crossfire to work?

This is the card im looking at at the moment.

ATI claims as long as they are the same series i.e. 57xx 58xx ect you will have no problem crossfiring them with the latest drivers.

I have a Cool Master 750W Power Supply, do you think that this would be enough for a second video card?
