Wanna buy a gpu for my system, my motherboard supports "PCI-E x16" but everywhere in market graphic cards are specified by "PCI-E 2.0 x16". I am confused will PCI-E 2.0 x16 gpu work on my motherboards's PCI-E x16 slot or not??

The graphics card will work fine, but will have lower bandwidth CPU <-> GPU so you might get slightly lower fps in games etc.
PCIe x16 pretty much has the same bandwidth as PCIe 2.0 x8.
will it be able to play games smoothly or it will cause lag? and if it is then how could i overcome through this problem?
