If you want to run a second card get another 460. Sli only works if you have 2 of the same cards. Your mobo should have come with a sli bridge to connect the cards. The disadvantage is heat. if your case is not cooled well enough dual gou will heat it up. To run Sli (dual cards) you need to have 2 Pcie 2.0 x16 slots.

Actually, you need a motherboard that supports SLI, the poster's board does not.

"Can my computer run 2 graphic card at once..?"

Sure, just not with the card you have. Your board supports ATI Crossfire so that means you need two ATI Crossfire cards. And make sure you have a damn good power supply.
