Got delivered yesterday, took out my 8800GT, removed drivers, installed, updated drivers...So I'm playing around with it, download MSI Afterburner so I could watch temps/usage and it worked fine. After I went into BIOS and overclocked my CPU, it stopped displaying GPU Usage...Not saying that's what caused it, but that's when I noticed it had stopped displaying.
Trying to fix it, I check everything else....And notice GPU-z is displaying it as running in PCI-E 1.1, even though the board is obviously 2.0. And this might be my imagination but I feel like the games aren't running as good as they did before this "problem
At first I was using the 10.2 drivers because the 5830 had it's own category, then I tried the general 5800 series 10.3 and apparently 10.4 just came out so I tried those.
Even updated my BIOS but that didn't fix it.

I'm about to plug in my old 8800GT and see if maybe my new card isn't getting enough juice. After these problems I made sure it was seated in the slot and the two power pins plugged in...More than happy to share any more info or take pictures, please help.
The PCIE standard is down to the motherboard. The card is 2.0 capable but i would think that your board is only 1.1 capable. this isn't an issue and you wont loose any performance at all.
I would have said the drivers were to blame for the other issue as others have reported buggy behaviour with them as well.
