It is more a case of "How many video cards will my system support"?
There are people running anything between 1 and 13 - although once you get beyond about 3 or 4 it gets more difficult due as the exact set-up of the computer comes into play.

[ edit]
New record number is 14.....

Your CPU supports a maximum of 16 PCIe lanes, which depending on your motherboard is used by all the PCIe slots and any nvme M.2 slots you have.
