Will a PCIe x8 3.0 card work in my PCIe x16 2.0 slot?

I've been looking for graphics cards lately and i found this one ( Only problem is, is that it says it's a PCIe x8, where my motherboard has a PCIe x16 slot. Would it fit just fine and work fine? Or would I have to find a new card? Thanks!

    Yes it will work in that slot, just bear in mind your card won't be running as fast it would be if it were in a PCIe 3.0 slot
