Yes it can even though cards like the gtx295, 9800gx2,and for ATI 4870x2,5970 ect look like single cards they are all dualcard set ups and actualy hven internal SlI and Crossfire but with the advantage of that they only take up one PCi-E x16 slot which means in games that support SLI/Crosfire they will give you an amazeing boost but in games that dont your performance may suffer

So for example the GTX295 is basicly x2 GTX260 samwiched togeather but with all the shaders unlocked which means in games that support SLI it will give you slightly better performance than running x2 GTX260 in SLI but in games that dont support SLI it will give you slightly higher performance than a single gtx260
