It just won't work. The way the two different architectures process data and render pixels is completely different. The 7XXX series was essentially a complete re-invention of graphics technology.

But, if you really want to put two cards on the same board and install a crossfire connector, good luck. I'm pretty sure you won't blow anything up, but have fun getting to play together at all.
