Would my system be able to handle a second graphics card?

I'm wanting to upgrade my graphics card but was curious as to whether I could just add the second one instead of getting rid of my current one.

My specs are:

Motherboard: ASRock Extreme3 R2.0
CPU: AMD 8 core FX 8320
Case: NZXT Phantom 410
Video: Asus GTX 660
Power: XFX Pro 750W
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD SATA 6GBS
Optical Drive: Samsung Optical Drive SH-224DB/BEBE
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4) 240-Pin

You can add a second one but you would be better off with one powerful card instead of two weaker ones. Your power supply is more than enough to handle them.

Any idea what a good upgrade would be for mine? in like the 300-500 range.

If you don't want to spend more than 350 you could go with the R9 280X but if you can shell out something closer to 500 then go for the R9 290. Currently those have the best value and of course do not go for the reference cooler. Also stick to these brands : Asus, Sapphire, Gigabyte and XFX.
