If you have 2 pcie ports, then yes you can. However, in doing so, only one card will have full power, while the other performs worse. Generally this is not recommended.

do you mean run 2 cards in SLI or just 2 cards for multi monitor use (& that's even without mentioning ATis Crossfire ...)?
It all depends upon which mobo, which gfx cards & intended usage.
