As per PCIe specification, any PCIe card will work in any PCIe slot.

Sure. I think my 8800 GTS is 2.0, and it works fine in my 1.0. I even ran a 3dMark06 score of 13,100, so there doesn't seem to be any ill effects.

As others have said, it'll work just fine. I run an 8800GT in my A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard right now, and am moving to SLI here in a week or so. I've also ran a single 8800GTS 512 with no problems.

I believe his "Your sig is useless" comment was directed towards Duckie who has sig states that you can use any PCIe card in any PCIe socket.....
