Default 2 Video Cards in one PC?

I am a newbie on the technical side of things so apologies in advance if this turns out to be a dumb question.

I was considering getting a GeForce 7900GS 265MB for a new E6600 build based on price and the fact that a friend has one and has let me try it out on his machine and I was impressed, but then I was comparing it against the 4 year old + card on my older machine.

Was looking at stretching the budget to get a different card based on another recommendation but my friend suggests I buy the 7900GS now and he will give me his card when he moves to the new 8000 series early next year. The idea being I will then end up having two cards in my machine. My questions are is this technically possible and are there and benefits / disadvantages?
