Thanks, I figured as much, Just to be a devil's advocate, what would happen if I crossfire 6850 & 7850 together? BSOD or Black screen at boot up? or would the computer only see one video card?

It would detect two separate cards and Crossfire cannot be enabled.

If you're talking about Hendriksie, he wasn't Crossfiring them, just using them in the same system.
