Default Re: The right vid card to buy?

pci-e 2.0 is backwards compatible with all pci-e slots.
they are both PCI-E X16 slots, the only difference is that PCI-E 2.0 delivers twice the bandwidth which is X32, but theres no card out there that can use up all X16 bandwidth.

to answer your question - Yes, It will work with your PCI-E slots
