You need to find out if the game supports dual cards.
I did a quick google of does ffxiv support sli and crossfire, first result is not very encouraging.
You need to find out if that has changed.

You're going to have to explain what you mean by lag.

Lag and low FPS are not the same thing.

i know for a fact that it does support sli and crossfire, it didnt in the beta but they added it. by lag i meant low fps in heavily populated areas.

WoW does the same thing in heavily populated areas.
It's not completely GPU dependent. It has something to do with processing all the different feeds coming in from the players.
And just to point out, 16x to 8x has a mighty ONE PERCENT difference in testing.

That lag is NOT because of your video card. I have heard from people who actually play WoW that an SSD helps believe it or not. Generally a faster disc doesn't help performance in game but I guess a lot of data is streamed from your disc at different game properties(ie art, models) come into scene.

Also, verify that your home network is configured properly.

I crossfired my 5770s one time and it was totally not worth it.

Hmm.. Its weird. What makes you say that. And with what game did you try it?

I haven't heard anyone yet not being impressed with two GPU's.

Besides its a 5770 not sure if you'll get impressed. I've seen benchmarks and got impressed with the 6850, 6870 and 560Ti.

Even with a gtx 580 SLi, 8x/8x made NO difference compared to 16x/16x up to 2560x1600

But for eyefinity like 5000x1200, then it makes a difference, but still only like 55fps vs 60fps, that type of level.

Thats from some review at tomsharware/3dguru...some big place like that.
