You can put the second one as a physX card, or sell them both and get a good gfx card from the current generation, either a 660 ti or 7950, that motherboard even for crossfire isn't good, with the second pcie at 4x and sharing the bandwidth with other resources.

The pros is that you'll have better performance with titles that supports physX(with the physX enable and at mid/high settings), the cons, you'll have a higher power consumption, it won't help outside some games with demanding physX levels, just put the card on the second slot, it will be recognized, and go to the nvidia panel and set the physX card.
In my opinion, if you can sell the cards and get 300$ for a 660 ti or 7950 it will be better.
