Default Graphics card question

hi

I have found a good graphics card and it says that it is a PCI EXPRESS 2 card. My computer has a PCI EXPRESS 16x, would that graphics card fit into my computers PCI slot?

Thanks

Yes, that is the type of module. PCI Express 16 2.0 is the same as 1.0. The slot is just newer with twice the bandwidth of 1.0. If you get a 2.0 card, it will work in 1.0. The speeds will theoretically be half.
