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.
BUS: PCI Express x8
My cousin has the same card and his says x16 in that area.
CAN ANYONE HELP AM I GETTING SCREWED?
11 views and absolutely no idea, Im just freaking out because either there is a setting to be changed or my hardware is bullSh*T
Maybe if you listed a model # rather than "gigabyte motherboard" somebody might have an idea of what's going on.
Motherboard Model is
Video Card is
BFG 8800gt Overclocked.
hopefully that will help
GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-M61SME-S2 (rev. 2.x)
it says on my box these exact terms.
nVidia Geforce 6100/nforce 405 rev.2.0
AMD2 PCI-E*16 Micro ATX
the critical information that im pissed about is that is says that on the box. GAY
It supports X16 cards (I had an asrock board which "supported" X16 cards but would only do it at X4 speeds).
As far as PCIe 2.0 goes... nothing you wrote there says anything about PCIe 2.0.
The 2.0 you see is the motherboard revision #.
Exactly, 16x card support, 8x real speed.
well I wouldn't worry to much about it...
Tomshardware.com did a comparison of PCIE bus width and gaming performance.
so your video card is probably not utilising the full bandwidth of PCIE16 let alone worries of PCIE16v2
