I currently am setting up a capture card into the pci x8 slot of this mobo since this mobo doesn't have pcie gen 2 slots.

My question is this: Since the manual states that the x4 slot is disabled since I have an SSD installed in the m2 slot that shares bandwith and also states that when the x8 is "populated" that the x16 will run at x8, does that mean that my graphics card (2070 SUPER) will ALWAYS run at x8 or only when the capture card is actually in use or under load?
