Thread Starter 
Ok so i have a pair of GTX 460 card. Their Galaxy 768MB factory oc cards.
Now I don't have a sli mobo. But one card runs at X16 an when I change cards one is Stuck in X8 I have cleaned the pcie slot an fingers on the card. What could be wrong with this one? I even put it in a Dell I have an it still shows x8 an tried the other an it shows x16.
Please help.
Thanks.

Have you checked that there are no scratches on the PCIE leg of the card?

Also just saying that x8, as long as its still PCIE 2.0 @ X8, will not give any performance issues with the card. It will run the same.

I have noticed a score difference between the two cards in heaven bench mark like over 200 difference in the score.

Are you just testing one card alone (nothing else connected), shut down, connect second card (remove first one), restart, rerun benchmark, and see a difference?

Also run 2 runs of heaven 2.5 (without restarting it) or hwbot heave benchmark. This should give more reliable results. 200 isn't much and can be because of randomness or you are too quick on the trigger to run it

Also, run another benchmark, or OCCT with error testing, to make sure both cards are fine.
Another option is that the second card is defected in some way.
