    1. asus p5b deluxe wifi-ap
    2. e-geforce 7900 gs ko
    3. corsair ddr2 800(pc2 64000)
    4. enermax ps elt500awt

    updated motherboard bios to (1004) today 1-27-07


    I am having graphic interface problems with the pci-e slots.

    Using the secondary slot , I can run link width x4 but I have never been able

    to run any faster than x1 using the primary slot


    I think there is something wrong with my bios settings but what??
