When it comes to motherboards, will it affect your rigs performance if you use a motherboard that has 3 pci express 3.0 slots, but only one is configured for x16 performance, and the rest drop to x8 if you run 3 GPU's in crossfire mode? Should they all be x16 slots, or does it even matter, as long as you're using pci express 3.0 slots?

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

Does the bandwidth ( x16, x8 ) not matter on a pci-e slot, as long as it's pci-e 3.0?
