Default can you crossfire

Can you crossfire a 5850 with a 6850?

I currently own a asus topcu 5850 and would like to add another one to it for bf3. I use a formula V mobo. Am i able to mix these two cards?

No you cannot as they are two different architectures. You can only crossfire cards within the same generation and subgeneration. 58xx can crossfire with each other, 5870 and 5770 cannot (example)
