PCI Express x16 or X8

Hi, how can I determine if my PCI Express slot on my motherboard is indeed a x16 slot, I have read a few articles and seena few 8800 GT cards on eBay that are for sale because the seller though they had a x16 slot but found out it was only x8!

My motherboad site quotes x16 but I would like to make sure before I purchase a new card.

if the slots work in the same way as agp then if you put a 16x card in a 8x slot it would work but at 8x. if you motherboard manual says 16x it will be 16x.
