It just means that when you have the two x16 slots occupied, they'll downclock to x8 speeds, so they'll both run at x8 x8. I doubt it'll affect performance to the point that you'll notice unless you're doing some intense GPU compute and rendering tasks.

So go ahead and get another 560ti with that motherboard. It'll still run perfectly well.
