I recently upgraded my computer and am just inquiry if I can upgrade to a dual video card configuration? My motherboard supports 2 X PCI-E 16X. So in turn could I use dual cards?

My Specs are as follows:

ASUS M4A79 Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

XFX PVT98WYDBF GeForce 9800 GTX+ Black Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

No, you would need to Crossfire or use a single card.
