you can only do it if your 2 cards can be crossfired which would require the cards to support crossfire and be compatible. you would also need to have a crossfire bridge connecting the 2 cards.

the performance gain isn't double and doesn't always work well with all games.

I would highly recommend you buy a new card altogether if you want to play games. The 5450 is not a gaming card by any standards, and doesn't seem to have very good Xfire scaling :) 
What's your rig/budget?

Nice Doraemon avatar.

No, your card does not support Xfire. It can hybrid Xfire, but the gain from hybrid Xfiring a weak card with IPG on compatible mobo will be minimal.

I suggest you to list your current full spec so we can give you the most appropriate upgrade path.

best option is upgrading your video card, if you tell us your Power supply, and the maximum budget of a gpu whe can recommend you a upgrading, buying another 5450 will give you almost no improvement in gaming and will be a waste of money.

if you wan't to play batman arkham city i would recommend you minimum a 6850 but that is a little over your budget U$149

the best gpu on that budget is the 6770 but if you can upgrade to the 6850 would be a nice investment.

but you need to make sure your psu is good enough to handle it, also make sure your Motherboard have a pci-e x16 slot

7750 could be an option too.
