How to put my GTX1080 to PCIE x16

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 880-061
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all! I got my Omen PC-880-061 two years ago and recently I found that my GPU (GTX 1080) is at PCIe x8 lanes. There is one thing that I could not understand. 

When I am not running a game, the PCIe lane tells me the speed is x8 2.5GT/s.

But it changed to 8.0 GT/s when I am playing a game.

I am wondering if this PCIe x8 lane will limit the power of the GPU and should I change it to x16 lane? I am also planning to add another NVME SSD with a PCIe adapter. Will that slow down the GPU? Thanks!
