for some reason the new radeon 9800pro that I bought refuses to run at 8x. I know the performance difference is hardly noticable between 4x and 8x but I want to good feeling that comes with knowing that ur running at 8x.

my comp:
asus a7n8x deluxe rev2 w/bios v1005
athlon xp 1500+ (running at ~1.6ghz 1.8vcore)
512mb OCZ PC3500 DDR
sapphire radeon 9800pro 256mb ddrII
ati tv wonder pci
remote wonder
520watt vantec stealth
16x pioneer slot feed dvd
120gb 7200rpm maxtor

I have all the latest drivers for my devices and smartgart says that it is running at 8x. CPU-z says that it is running at 4x. Is it just a problem with CPU-z?
thanks,
Folken
