It will work... it could slow it down but no cards right now even use the full bandwith of a 16X PCIe 1.0 ( so it won't slow it down)

it will not even slow it down. i have 2 PCIe 2.0 cards in my rig right now and they are pulling 20K in 3dmark06 so just get the card you want and slap her in.

ITs just like a X16 card. They work the same and fit the same.
