Crossfire is an ATI PCI-E thing in which you run two similair graphics cards in one system for increased performance, similair to Nvidia's SLI. You need two PCI-E 8x slots, two similair PCI-E cards, and a compatible motherboard and drivers. There are no retail AGP motherboards I know of with crossfire support, let alone two AGP connectors. Wikipedia doesn't mention agp in the crossfire article either: http://en.wikipedia....Crossfire_(GPU)
I'd say marketing hype copy and paste mixup.
The extra height is what we call a dual slot cooler, you'll need a free space next to the slot but it will be more effective and push the hotter air directly out of the case.

Edit: OR would that be that I need the one below? cuz i think when installed the card should actually be flipped the other way then it is in the picture
Edit: Never mind i confused myself, it doesnt flip it should be a free slot above not below like i said originally lol

Anyway I'm glad I could help. I feel like I learned a lot from this thread... Intel's Hypethreading or lack of, Tigerdirect labelling their AGP cards as "Crossfire Ready" lmfao
Hey but make sure you make an update here when you get the card, and how it's working and everything ok?
