Can 2 different video cards be in same PC and both fold?

I'm folding w/ a GTX 970 in my gaming PC. From what I've been reading in members sigs, it seems that I could put in my old HD6870 in another slot(not SLI/Crossfire) of my MSI Gaming M7 that currently holds my GTX 970. Does that make sense? Is that a way of folding w/ two gpu slots or can this only be accomplished w/ two like cards?

My experience was mixed.

I was unable to get a GTX 660ti (Kepler) to work with any of the Maxwell GPUs (960, 970, 980 etc) on the same PC. But I've had no issues with multiple Maxwell GPUs on the same PC.

Mixing AMD and NVidia on a Windows system is pretty easy (this is one of the VERY few places Windows is better than LINUX) - but system stability won't be as good as a non-mixed machine.
For that old of an AMD card, stick with the 15.12 drivers - the newer stuff doesn't work any better on anything before the Fury line and are less stable (16.10.1 seems to be the next-best, for those that run RX 4xx series or Fury, since you MUST run newer drivers for the newer cards. No clue on drivers for the RX 5xx series as the "relive" drivers are poor-performance bloatware that I've been avoiding other than an occasional test to see "did this version finally get any better?")
