No.  It isn't a question of computer hardware specs.  Its about your recording software/DAW.

Most recording software/DAW can only use 1 audio recording device at one time.  

You can however have multiple and different devices installed and connected to 1 computer.  But again, most recording audio software will use only 1 device at 1 time.

If you need more channels with your setup, you will now need to consider a different recording interface that has as many channels as you may need.  There are many different audio recording interfaces that can suite many different setups and rigs.

What I do to use more then one interface is I use Reaper as a VST in StudioOne, then in Reaper use the second interface with a clean input. In turn you can use this as an instrument in StudioOne. Takes some trial and error but it works.
