The PSU should handle it. It is a low power card.

It should work - it just won't give you 100% of what it is capable of. Kind of like driving a Ferrari on city streets....it goes, but you have a speed limit. A Ford Escort will go just as fast on the streets if you follow the speed limit.

I have installed newer v3.0 cards in systems that have v1.0 slots, and they have worked fine....to the maximum speed of the mobo.
