Tass,It stands for step-climb, the point at which you should step up to a higher cruise altitude to improve range and fuel economy. If you check the FMC's CRZ page it'll show you what altitude it's calculating a step to - when you reach the point, just dial up the new altitude (after getting ATC clearance of course) and press the altitude selector to commence the cruise-climb.

It and its less expensive xt brother are quite nice. They currently are rated just above a GeForce 7900GT/X. I would suggest considering holding onto your money for a bit longer though especially if you plan to prepare your Vista/FSX/DX10 machine. Both Ati and Nvidia are working on their DX10 video cards and should be annoucing them in the next month or two.
