Hello,
Does having dual video cards help single display preformance/ quality?

It certainly can. Some single graphics cards can produce higher quality images than certain dual video cards, though. There are a lot of factors going into it. Mainly what you already have to work with and what your budget is.

I had purchaced a Dell XPS720 a few years back and ran games at that time with ease. It came with (2x) NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS, and running windows Vista.

I was wondering if i can combind the preformance of both cards to have my (what now seems ancient) computer to pass for upcoming games like Final Fantasy XIV.

Two 8600 GTS in SLI will probably produce similar performance to one 8800 GTS 640 MB, in more modern terms it will perform a bit below an HD 5670 or 9800 GT.

What i wanted to ask, if i installed another one of the same cards 8600GTS, and enable SLI will i be able to run newer games like the upcoming Final Fantasy 14 game? If not what should i look into to renovate or upgrade my pc.
