It's motherboard dependant.

My Gigabyte board automatically splits the PCI-e lanes whenever a 2nd card is present. It was never really designed for serious 2 card graphics solutions... it doesn't support sli, but technically crossfire, but it splits the lanes... so there are obvious disadvantages to it.

It really all depends on your motherboard's implementation
