You can put any card in any PCI-E slot due to them being forwards and backwards compatible.

PcI-e specifications are largely backward compatible. It will work fine. As for the card, is the 6790 significantly cheaper where you live than the 6850, because the 6850 is the better card for (what in the UK at least) only 10%/£10 more.

I'm sure you won't regret it. The HD 6850 is a great card in that price bracket. They usually overclock like beasts. I have one on my desk right now, that is stable on stock voltages at 925mhz/1100mhz core/mem. The 6790 has quite a bit cut out of it from the 6850 and is clocked higher at stock. The reduced ROP count on the 6790 is quite a big hindrance though, particularly at higher resolutions.
