Prioritising PCIe slots

I am building a M-ATX PC, but due to a wide cooler, i cannot put my GPU in the first PCIe x16 slot. Can I change lane speed in the bios? If not, does x8 make a big difference from x16? Motherboard

no you cant change the lane speed. The difference in performance is not that great. It affects in a greater scale high end gpus
