    Its a common problem with loads of ATI cards. Is it a Nforce board by any chance ?

    Really dont worry about it, the difference is not noticable.

    Have you got the latest bios on your mb?

    If you have and it still doesn't work i honestly wouldn't worry about it, as Agent said the difference between 8x and 4x isn't really noticeable.

    check in the bios its set to x8, it should be though as my canterwood board (ic7 max3) seemed to detect I had a x8 card in there by default.
