I'm about to order a Mac Pro for editing HDV,and I want to know if..

a) Getting two Nvidia cards will make any difference.

b) If the two cards I get will be running in SLI.

Does anyone know?

From my understanding there is no driver to recognize SLI in OS X. However, I read somewhere that you can get it to work with BootCamp/WinXP

I think the Intel 5000X unofficially supports SLI, but I don't see it working in OSX for quite some time. It just doesn't seem to be an interest to Apple. At the moment the only thing you will gain from having 2 nVidia cards is the capability to use 4 monitors. They don't run in SLI.
