Quick question

I have two pci slots on my mobo, One accordingly runs at x4 while the other is x16

i have my gfx card in the pci 3.0 (x4) slot.

no fps change

Does it only go to x4 when in SLI mode?

I presume you mean PCIe slots. The x4 slot has 1/4 the bandwidth of the x16 slot. Depending on the PCI verson and the card you are using, it could bottle neck your graphic card.
