I used to run a 6800 next to my 8800 Ultra for an extra screen, never had any issues.

Don't know about having different brands (ATi and nVidia) but two nVidia cards worked just fine.

8xxx series ran fine with 6xxxx series for desktop use. Gaming was fine too, my 6800 just displayed the desktop background while I gamed, no impact to FPS. No problems at all. Works fine for regular use, don't know if it would affect [email protected]?
