    On my G31T-M7 mobo, GPU-Z tells me that my 9800GX2 is on a PCI Express X16 2.0 slot, which my mobo doesnt support. Its X16 1.1

    for a 2.0 capable card in a 1.1 slot it says "pcie 2.0 x16 @ x16" ... for a 2.0 card at 2.0 "pcie 2.0 x 16 2.0"

    might be worth a small update to say "PCI-E 2.0 x16 @ 1.x 16x" etc

    actually, a better idea.
    Change it to three fields.

    Running at:

    Might need to rearrange the UI a little, but it would clear up all the confusion people have.
