Have you tried placing the graphics card back in the 1st slot? maybe it is not seated correctly? Did you kill the power to the board while swapping the card? Did the BIOS battery come up a little? And also check to see if you didnt knock off a cap or resistor on the mobo while swapping parts.

I can tell you that the reason your card is only running at x8 is because the mobo BIOS needs to be flashed to the latest version to enable the card to run @ x16

Also take your gfx card with you to test on his pc, better check everything at once.

It is in the first slot, and I reseated it way too much so I think it's seated correctly

It would be the reason BUT I've got the latest BIOS F14 check Gigabyte's website

Well this is complicating to say the least. The only thing I can tell you is to just check the RAM in your friends mobo as intended and then go from there.

You can verify that you havent knocked anything off the mobo by looking at the bottom of the case for a cap or small smd or something. Check the mobo thoroughly for missing components. I was just throwing it out there just to cover all grounds.

I agree that you should test every component that you can while you have your friends PC at your disposal. I would also check the PSU to make sure it didnt fail on you as well. It is better to take the time to test everything then to go broke diagnosing blindly

I checked the PSU on my Old system, it's Core 2 Duo E7400 overclocked to 3.5GHz and a 2GB Kingston ValueRAM 800MHz with my new HD5770 and hard drives and the PSU worked flawlessly
