Gigabyte 8600GT 256mb x8 vs x16? Tags: Nvidia Motherboards Gigabyte Graphics Last response: August 1, 2009 5:23 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Platinumz August 1, 2009 2:19:37 AM I'm just wondering is there a big difference in performance if my card is running at x8 than x16? CPU-Z Reports that my motherboard supports x16. My card is running at x8 and I can't make it run at x16 on my motherboard. Is it due to limitations on the card itself or the motherboard I'm running?
