Its usually set in the bios.

On many early SLI motherboards if in SLI it can only do 8x per slot.

my motherboard is not an SLI as it only have one PCIE socket and is capable of running on x16 speed according to the manual however despite running a single card a 7950GX2 once installed and the drivers installed it shows on GPU-Z PCIE capacity x16 running @ x8??? why is that. the other thing anoiyed me is only shows 512m of ram and 256bit when the card box stated 1g ram 512bit, despite this GPU-Z stated SLI enabled.Grr

Thats odd, check your PCI-E settings in the bios? What do the nvidia drivers say about speeds etc?
