as you have set it up now, you would not notice an increase in performance, speed or throughput.
you pc will select the the network controller which is listed first in your hardware configuration and/or the one with the better performance but that depends on the controller and software.

to increase network performance and/or increase speed you would need to enable link aggregation which can be found and configured in the network controller configuration (properties).
in most cases this would have to be supported by the switch on the other end as well.

if both of your network adapters have the same controller then this should be possible

however, unless the switch and network on the other are actually able to supply with a higher speed, it's pointless.

where are the two connection going to or coming from? dsl, cable, lan, sat, etc

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.
