I am planning to get a hd6850. Is it dual slot, and what is dual slot? I only have one PCI-E 2 x16 slot so if it is dual slot will I not be able to run it?

Dual slot refers to the amount of slots the back plate and HSF takes up, look closely at the pictures of the cards and all will become clear.

So even though I only have one PCI-E x16 slot I can still run it?

Yes, so long as there is nothing in the next slot along.
