Graphics Card: PCI Express x16 Detected as PCI Express Link width: 4X
I am running NVIDIA XFX 7300 GT on Debian Sid with latest stable driver 1.0.9755-1 .
Now in my Xorg.0.log it is shown as:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Support for GLX with the Damage and Composite X extensions is
(II) NVIDIA(0):    enabled.
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce 7300 GT at PCI:1:0:0 (GPU-0)
(--) NVIDIA(0): Memory: 262144 kBytes
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Detected PCI Express Link width: 4X
(--) NVIDIA(0): Interlaced video modes are supported on this GPU
(--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on GeForce 7300 GT at PCI:1:0:0:

but the card is supporting and board too pcie x 16 \
I have a PCIEx16 card and slot of x16 same.but now Xorg log shows as Detected PCI Express Link width: 4X .what went wrong?
Also in my BIOS of intel 915GV based gigabyte board it is enabled as PCIEXpress where it went wrong.
Ubuntu Feisty too shows the same thing.

Gigabyte is a fraud company :S
Gigabyte 81915ME-GV Intel 915GV chipset with pci-express slot x16 available.
onboard intel gfx too available,but automagically disabled once the gfx card is pushed in.
:thx all,
I found the answer below in the gigabyte website.but it seems to me as they cheated me :x
Expansion Slots

1. 1 x PCIe x 16 slot (x4 mode)

(*Support transfer up to 33MHz and compatible with AGP 8X slot. See link below for more detail imformation and Graphics Card Support list )
3. 2 x PCI slots

Uhh, that's a nasty surprise. Hopefully 4x is enough to feed a 7300.

there is performance problem there with this slot.hope will get a good mobo supporting pciex16 fully.
