I am planning to buy a new motherboard (Asus / Intel i7). Since I already have a decent VGA, my plan was to continue with my graphics card for a while and then buy a second (high end) card. I want to use both cards then. However, my computer dealer says, I cannot mix NVIDIA and ATI Radeon cards.
- Is that true, and if so, why?
- If true, is there some other restriction or is it just the vendor. So can I mix any Nvidia with any Nvidia?
- Or is this just wrong, or might it depend on the motherboard?
I am aware that I can use advanced features if I provide two identical graphics cards. So it is recommended to use similar cards - but is it a must. BTW, I am talking about a WIN 7 x64 system, if this matters (restriction OS based?).

After simkill's answer (pointing in the right direction) I have found this illustrative setup quide (link).
