New System, Graphics card might be running x8 speed

Hello,

I only just got a new system with the following specs:

i5 2500k
GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
GTS450
Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz

I read somewhere that sometimes the card could be running x8 instead of x16, can you please check the following screenshot with me?



Do you think it's running fine?

Thanks for your help.

Bus Interface: PCI-E 2.0x16 @ x8 2.0

It looks fine to me.

I think it's running at x8 instead of x16
Mine looks like the attached image

Was this a self built PC or is it a pre-built with warranty?

Thanks for both your replies, I built it myself.

Turns it out was indeed running at x8.. I plugged it into the wrong pci-e socket.

Thanks once again
