Yes and it will work fine. The PCIe spec indicates backward compatibility. That's a PCIe 2.0 card. Your board supports PCIe 1.1. This is fine. The 5450 isn't a high-end card, but it's a good general-purpose card and should pair nicely with that motherboard:

Do make sure your motherboard is updated to the latest BIOS rev level to ensure compatibility with the newer hardware:

No fan is meant for dust-proofing. The job of the fan is to cool. As a matter of fact, you should clean the fan often with compressed air because it will collect dust.

If you plan for the card to use 30-40W (3A-4A on the 12V rail) you'll be fine:

This is the same toms review saying the card needs a max of just under 20W (requiring <2A on the 12V):

Bottom line is this card doesn't use much power.

What is the lifespan of what? The video card??? That's kind of like asking what the lifespan is of a wall switch or lamp.

I would take the manufacturer's warranty and consider that a lifespan. It should last much longer, but there's a reason for a warranty term length. Anything beyond that is great and what makes you go back to a brand.
