Wow , seriously, this is a support forum and you treat people like that ?

And yes Timofoaia , you can run 2 6790's from different manufacturers just fine.

The only downside is that the cards different bios's can cause sensor glitches in things like GPUz but thats the only real issue and wont effect performance.

Just remember to uninstall the drivers , then add the second card then reinstall the drivers as if you dont the drivers can glitch.

 

Hope this helps.

Well before his/her edit, the OP just posted a short and simple statement.  There was nothing to help with.  My comment instigated an edit and as such, you followed up with some help.  If I hadn't said a thing the thread would have fallen to the way-side and the OP would have got nothing from this forum.

And before you go the crossfire route make sure your cpu is quick enough to support both cards, otherwise you will end up with worse performance than 1 card and it will be a stuttery lagfest.

With such low power cards I would not advise Crossfire, but instead buy a single card of equal or greater power, such as the HD 7870 Ghz edition or above.
