Need new mobo for Xfire 5850? gigabyte890gx

My motherboard has two PCI-E slots at 16x or 8x8x

Is the 8x 8x enough to support crossfiring 5850's? Or should I just go for a 5870?

Reason I want to xfire 5850 is I want to spend around $300 right now and be able to upgrade with xfire in the future.

8x 8x is fine for Crossfire HD5850's, You'd only be losing roughly 1-2% compared to 16x 16x.
