Confusion about PCIe slots

Actually I am planning to buy a ATI Radeon R7 240 1GB DDR5 CARD. But I have an ASUS P5G41TLMX Mainboard which has PCIe 2.0 while the card asks of 3.0 . I want to know will i be able to run the card and even if I am able to run it will it be low on performance due to the older PCIe version?
Please help me guys and thanks for you guys in advance.

  1. the performance will improve a bit on 3.0 however you can still use that gpu on 2.0 slot

    There shouldn't be a performance difference, Tom's has done several tests for this and with a card like the 240 you will not exceed the bandwidth of 2.0.
