View Full Version : Why does it Say my new 7800 is on Bus: Pci Express x8?

I thought when using a single graphics card the PCI e bus is supposed to be x16!?!? Also in Prince of Persia 2 Warrior Within my character starts running in slow motion in certein spots in the game. Any ideas? Thanks!

Btw it says this in the driver info panel under display properties.

i had this issue with a 6800ultra, it was down to the motherboard nforce drivers, try reinstalling all and use drivercleaer to make sure you get rid of them :cool:

either way, you will maybe see a 1 - 2 fps difference between 8x PCIe and 16x PCIe

what do you see in everest ?

it tells you what is on your PCIe and what speed they run.
someone had a problem once and there was something strange on PCIe port 3?!?

Yeah but I want everything to be squared away, I just ran everest, it wont tell me what speed the pcie bus is.

everest told me what PCIe bus mine is. it said x16....

On everest under motherboard, it says 2x PCI-E x16. On the Nvidia graphics info tab it says its running at PCI-E x8.
