Catalyst Reporting x8 instead of x16

I have a 4850 HSI card and when check out the hardware info in catalyst it reports the following:
Maximum Bus Setting PCI Express 2.0 x8
Why isn't this x16? And how can I get it to x16? My motherboard is a Biostar 790GX 128M

  1. Sorry, meant HIS. HIS Radeon HD 4850 IceQ4 1GB PCIe w/DL DVI
  2. It was in the first slot to begin with. When I saw the x8, I put it in the other. Still no go.
  3. Re-seat the card? If you aren't mounted it properly then it can show the same result like yours...
