Default Can I put 2 or more video cards in my computer?

My computer has a bunch of open AGP and PCI slots. I have a pretty good
video card from nvidia in one of the AGP slots. Can I put another video
card in another AGP/PCI slot? Will it work?

Basically: Can I put two different video cards in a computer and have
them kind of double graphics power?

Using two video cards will allow you to add more monitors. It will NOT
increase your video power!
And it will have to be a slow PCI card, since motherboards only come with
ONE AGP slot.
