  1. Best answer
    Yes, they are interchangeable in both directions. You can use a PCIe 3.0 card in a 2.0 slot or a 2.0 card in a 3.0 slot.

    The only concern is that it will physically fit in your case.
  2. Yes PCIE is forwards and backwards compatible. So a PCIE 3.0 card will work in a 2.0 slot and a 2.0 card would work in a 3.0 slot. PCIE 2.0 has more than enough bandwidth for a 1050 ti as well, so there should not be any performance loss caused by PCIE speeds.
