Crossfire, is running two ATI graphics cards as one. It's kinda like Nvidia's SLI, but you can run two different model ATI cards. just that they will both run at the performance of the slowest card. Where as SLI, you have to get both the same model Nvidia cards, to work.

I would go for either the Aurora or Armor. Don't know much about Koolance cases. The Armor is the popular choice for a performance full tower.
