Im getting this mobo
and this card.

If i plug my monitor into the video card (DVI) will it take advantage of both the integrated video as well as the card i bought? or will i need some kind of crossfire?

With the add on pci video card your integrated video will no longer be need`d. You may even have to disable it in the BIOS so the pci card will work.

Crossfire is only possible between two like cards if they and the mobo support it.

I think AMD/ATI had something like that, but I do not know if it was implemented.

Seems to be very limited.

Avoid NVidia chipset based motherboards. They do tend to have more stability problems.
