Re: PCI-E x16 running at x1 on new GTX 280
Just got it back from the RMA today, they found no fault with it. I installed it just now and it works perfectly.
Sorry this isn't much help if your having the same problem, I googled it extensively and there seems to be no definitive solution, I just hope I stay lucky.
