PCIe 16x or 8x?
So i was looking at my settings for my 6600GT, and what i mean is that i would right click on the desktop and go into properties and then into the settings tab and into my video card settings. On the page which shows all the info on my card it says that my 6600GT is PCIe and 8x...wtf is that all about? Is it not running at the right speed? I only have one card in there and SLI is not activated, so the single slot should be running at 16x not 8x.
In everest it says that my memory bandwith for my card is 16023, which is the correct speed, but the nvidia software tells me its 8x. When i run 3dMark03/05 and click on details it tells me that the card is sitting in slot pcie16_2, when the ASUS mobo says it should be sitting in PCIe16_1, but i looked insiode the box and it is sitting in the correct spot.
What the h3ll is going on man.
