Use only approved video cards for the current version of OSX you have. As far as I know Apple writes all of the video card drivers for OSX.

Increasing the number of GPUs on the machine will only enable you to drive more displays. It will not give you any more computing power to edit video.

Until snow leopard comes out, use only 1 gpu.
