Can I use two different video cards simultaneously?

I have an Asus 6870 DirectCU which is starting to show its age.  I'm looking to upgrade to a new card (a 270, 290, or something in that neighborhood), but I'm wondering if I would be able to use it simultaneously with the old card.  They wouldn't be linked in Crossfire as I'm not sure that's possible.  Would it work?  If so, I have a few other questions.

 

I'd want to run 3 monitors off of this setup, so would I be able to use Eyefinity with this?  How would this setup look in the AMD settings application?  And how would it perform under a heavy load like a modern game?   Would I only be able to run the heavy stuff on the displays connected to the new card, or would all 3 display connections perform at the same level?

 

The system is a i5 2500k on an Asus P8Z68-V LE motherboard.  Thanks in advance.
