  1. The card will use up two slots as seen from the back of the computer. It will not use two physical pci-e slots on the motherboard.
  2. It will use 2 expansions slot space on your case and not the PCIe slots on your mobo.

    Or to put it still a third way the card is as wide as two standard cards. so it takes up two card worth "dual" of space in the case.
