    So this could be a defective second PCI-E x16 slot?

    I don't think its the bios on the card because it is happening with both cards in the second pci-e x16 slot. I would have to say its motherboard related. I do appreciate your assistance and prompt responses.

    Probably is motherboard related, could be some compatibility issue with the card. Try to contact GB support and see if they can have it fixed.

    Annoying as it may be you shouldn't suffer any performance loss because of it x8 should be sufficient for these cards.

    The motherboard is out of warranty so I doubt they will have it fixed for me. Even though I am probably not suffering much at x8 I just wanted to figure out what the issue is.

    Was it made before Nov 2008? if not it's still under warrenty. (first 4 digits in s/n represent manufacturing date as YYWW(year/week), GB board carry a 3 years warrenty by GB).

    Even if it is not under warrenty it's still sold so they should support it, if it's just a BIOS fix is needed they'll do it sooner or later but they must be aware of it.

    The motherboard is still under warranty but will cost too much to ship it out and I can't be without a PC for that long. I guess I will just have to live with the problem.
