I just added an Asus Xonar DX (PCIE Card) to my computer, now I think it is bottlenecking my graphics.

I see where motherboards show the pcie will run at 16/0 8/8 or something like that, does this soundcard cut my graphics in half or something?

More Info
Radeon HD 6850
Asus Xonar DX
32" Acer
MSI-770 G45

I had the monitor at 1920x1080 before I added the sound card now I can only detect 1600x1200 for the highest resolution.

***Update Solved***

For some reason it messed with the display settings itself and I found out what the problem was.

I just had to reopen max display in catalyst control center to be able to support 1080p.
