Solved PCI x8 change to PCI x16 Tags: GPUs PCI Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: June 18, 2014 1:17 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Transon June 18, 2014 1:09:57 AM So, I just noticed that I've put my GPU on the PCI x8, my question is then, can I just remove the GPU and fasten it to the x16 slot and boot up again or do I need to format my computer for some reason? Thanks for the help!
