Any should do, Try to match memory though. And thry to get a cooler that isnt gonna cause one , or the other to run much hotter.

you can use any other brand you want, for best performance make sure to get the same clock speeds, and really matching cards is the best idea

You don't need to match card brands or even models. As long as it's a 6970 it'll crossfire just fine. Just remember that if the card you crossfire with is slower, the faster card will run at the slower speed.
