Default x8 and not x16

I have a PCI-E 2.0 slot on my gigabyte motherboard, It says it right on the box. I also have a BFG 8800GT which needs that slot. It is suppose to run at x16 and right now Its running at x8. How I found this was going into NVIDIA settings and clicking system information. Its saying right now that.

IRQ:16
BUS: PCI Express x8

My cousin has the same card and his says x16 in that area.

CAN ANYONE HELP AM I GETTING SCREWED?
