Motherboard with 3x PCIe slots

I am wondering how this will handle dual 6950s. I had a good, cheap MB picked out but it is out of stock now.

It says PCI Express 2.0 x16 3 (x16, x8, x4) .

1. Will it run 2 cards at x8? I was originally going for just getting 2 slots at x8, as I think that is all I need. The description is confusing to me though.

2. Do I need more than x8?

If you can suggest a cheap reliable board that also has 2 usb 3.0 ports on the back and a usb 3.0 header on the board, as well as the two x8 slots, I would appreciate that, as well, but please let me know the answers to my questions.

Thank you.
