I have a question, I can do crossfire and get the most performance from them?
Not quite. The second PCI-e will run at x4 so you will loose some FPS as compared with the more usual x8 x8.
16x4 with 6950's = roughly 5% performance loss, up to 50%, depending on the game.
PCIE2 slot runs @ x1 link by default, and USB3 uses one of the lanes to make x4 link, so you may also lose other functionality when using both PCIE slots.
What motherboard would you recommend? Make it cheap.
Anything with x8/x8 PCIe and cooling on CPU VRM section should be fine.

I have no access to newegg purchase. I'm from Spain, do you suggest Asrock Z77 Extreme4 ? and would be worth a link to x16? thanks.
Z77 extreme 4 is good. x8 x8 is fine.
Uh, that was already said in the first reply, 10 DAYS AGO
from my experience with x16 x4 crossfire(6950s) it sucked i was best playing with crossfire disabled
i will never be doing x16 x4 again and would not recommend it to anyone
i got a cheapish board what does pretty nice x8 x8 Asrock extreme3 gen 3 z68
here is a link $86 on newegg

Why did it suck? You shouldn't loose much with those cards (as said).
