So I was wondering which slot this goes in and if I could get where it is located it looks like a PCIex1 slot but it says x4 so were is that located?

That goes in a PCIE 2.0 x16 slot but it will only use 4 of the lanes of the 16 lane PCIE slot. Some motherboards have x4 slots too.

Those that mean i can not crossfire?

You can crossfire you just need to get a motherboard that has those slots available.

Do you have a reason that you want an expansion card and not a motherboard that already has this built in?

Well I like this ASUS board it has all the features the Gigabyte board has and more a little bit more expensive but I like ASUS better anyway.
