Yes it is possible, I have never personally done it but have seen it in
many gamer and server forums. Note most people use 2 ethernet ports for
this, I'm not sure it would work well with one being a wireless card
considering the extra latency.

You can also do things like load balancing across the nics or some
services hit one and some the other. I have a machine with nics on two
different subnets to skirt some firewall issues.
