I am building another machine and want to swap video cards. The newer machine is just for certain things and I want to take the video card I have from my other machine I built in Dec. and put it in my newer machine because my older machine is for more heavy duty things. It is a 7900 GS PCIe and the new board will have PCIe 2.0. Will that work in this board? If so, what would be a good card to use for my board now that is the old standard PCIe under $125? Will the new 2.0 standard work in my board or is it best to look for a card that is of the old standard 1.1? The new card will be running a 24" 1900x1200 monitor.

PCIe 2.0 is backwards compatible. It will work. How much do you want to spend on the new video card?
Will you be doing gaming with the new video card? The new PCIe 2.0 cards will work in PCIe 1.1 boards and vice versa.
