mobo is foxconn MCP61SM2MA FAB1.0; vid card is GeForce 8500GT; both supposedly capable of PCIe x16
GPU-Z reports "Bus Interface PCI-E x16 @ x8"
Does this mean my vid card is running at half capacity? If so, how do I correct this? (There is nothing in BIOS regarding this, nor does nHance or RivaTuner offer anything.)
I was on the verge of replacing the vid card (either a 9600GT or HD4850 ...I'm on a very tight budget) when I noticed this.
