    well, what does your system bench at? how many 3dmarks, for example?

    it might be displaying "PCI" as a simple bug in the drivers. it's a new card, after all.

    have you used netmeeting at all? i had a similar problem with a 2mx graphics card where after i used netmeeting with a webcam, the graphics card changed to PCI bus mode.

    i fixed it by installing Intel Application Accelerator (although that wont work for you - you've got an AMD system)... I assume if it is the same thing, there will be a similar fix for AMDs
