Its pretty much you have 2+ graphics cards to get an increase in graphics performance. In theory, you would get twice as much graphics processing power as a single card, but in reality its probably closer to a 50-90% increase in performance. It requires more power than a single card, but only as much more as the second card needs.

I recommend you read these wikipedia articles:
