Running a single EVGA 6800gt PCI-E on an ASUS A8N-Sli Deluxe mobo.
Downloaded EVEREST and found this entry
under the chipset/NForce4 Northbridge area:

"PCI Express Controller
PCI-E x2 port #3 In Use @ x4"

I expected it to say "x16" and not "x4". Am I missing something here? When
the pc arrived, I noticed that the SLI configurator board was installed for
dual cards, so I reversed it.

Any thoughts?

check your bios and make sure its set to SLI auto or single card.

I get the same report in Everest.
I would say Everest is not reporting correctly.

Any other program you can think of that would report this correctly?

Yeah but alot of techno geek DO benchmark and test everything is working ok
and as the specs state. It's troubleshooting more then anything. As this
PCI-E and nForce4 is all new gear and no doubt has some issues still.

So bench away!

Hey that's good news. As I expected, it was Everest's fault, not the
chipset.

Revision A3

PCI Express Controller
PCI-E x16 port #0 In Use @ x16 (Leadtek WinFast PX6600 GT Video Adapter)
PCI-E x1 port #1 Empty
PCI-E x1 port #2 Empty
PCI-E x2 port #3 Empty

Hi Dark Helmet, Everest like its predecessor (Aida32) usually has 10-20
beta versions between each stable version and you really have to read the
forums to get the latest release.
