I would recommend using the same make and model if at all possible, but those cards should work together.

AMD FX-8350 w/ Corsair H105, ASUS Sabertooth 990FX Gen3/R2, 8GiB G.SKILL DDR3-2133, XFX HD 7970 GHz Edition, 1TB Samsung 850 Evo, 256GB OCZ Vector, Creative X-Fi Titanium w/ Creative Gigaworks S750, SeaSonic X750, Corsair C70, HP ZR2440w, Win 7 Ult Ed x64

In theory, different brands should work fine.

In reality, at least for me, that's only true up to the 13.1 driver.  All other drivers afterwards do not work properly with my mixed CF setup, consisting of Gigabyte and Sapphire 7970 cards.

So I would echo the advice to stick to the same exact model card.
