Will nvidia sli work with one pci express 3.0 and 2.0?

Im making my first computer and i want to be able to add a second graphics card to boost preformance for feature games and the MOBO i have in mind has a PCI x16 3.0 and a PCi x16 2.0 or will i have to buy a mobo that has 2 PCI x16 slots?

  1. i wouldnt like to spend more than $100 on the MOBO and i would prefer MSI but if there is something else please tell me
  2. Yes, that won't make any difference. But that board's 2nd PCIe x16 slot is only x4 lanes bandwidth. See: http://us.msi.com/product/mb/H97MG43.html#hero-specification (Specifications/Detailed)
    As a result, adding a 2nd card for SLI will not be practical if you want the best performance from the 2nd card.

    It wouldn't allow you to sli on x4 anyways. Pcpartpicker easily let's you sort 2x sli and any other specs. http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/motherboard/#l=2&sort=a8
