Sapphire HD 6850 issue

So I decided to load up GPU-z today just for kicks and noticed that under bus interface, it read "PCI-E 1.1 x 16 @ x4 1.1" Here's a screenshot of it:



My vid card is a PCI-E 2.1. Why is it saying 1.1? This is my mobo (just in case you need it)

  1. Oh yea I should have mentioned that. I did run the render test for a good 2-3 minutes with no changes to the bus interface.
  2. Here's a top view layout of the mobo




    I have my 6850 plugged into the middle red slot. As you can see from the picture it says that red slot and the white slot are both PCI-E 2.0
  3. I'll try it now, but I don't think it would be able to go there. It looks like it's too high up. The open slot (where the inputs fit in) is right in line with the middle red slot. That's why i put it there.
  4. Ok just switched it and everything seems to be fine now. Much obliged!
