I think youre asking if a PCI2 can fit into a PCI 1? Yes it can, no problems

so lets say a EVGA 8800 GTS PCI Express x16 2.0 card can fit in a regular PCI Express x16 slot and still work eventhough it's huge and will take one PCI slot too?

DAM it I could of bought a 8800 instead of a 8600GT!

physically the slot is the same. the difference lies in bandwith, 2.0 has more.

Although 16x still isnt fully utilized, so its a moot thing to worry about.
