If i buy a pci x1 raid card can i insert it into a pci x16 slot (normally used for graphics cards) will it still work?

most likely, yes... but what a waste of PCI-E x16 slot. You should by a x8 PCI-E raid card, at lease you would be using half.

thanks, i just wanted to know if the different size cards will fit the different sized slots and still work.

Please note, it will only work smaller card into larger slot, not the other way. (unless the connector is open at the end)
