Default Will this work at full 16x

Simple Question prolly with a simple answer but I dont know it. Anyway I was wondering if the 7900GS will work in the mobo board I just ordered at full 16x I know some of these board out here say they are 16x but really 4x pci extreme crap. So I figured you guy knew you stuff so let me know here are the parts

according to it it has a pci-e16x so it should theoretically run at 16x but hey most cards dont even use up all the bandwith so it may not run at full16x problaly 11 or something

/\ You are correct, most cards and apps are not utilizing the full 16x feature...that is not to say that something in the near future may not pop up that does.

I was just wanting to make sure that this board could support it if it was ever needed it seems from what you are telling me though that it does support but mose games and apps out today dont need all 16x of power.
