If your MB has a PCIE, it will support any PCIE graphics card. 1.1 and 2.0 designate bandwidth available through the slot. PCIE graphics cards are compatible with either, they are backwards compatible.

Why does the slot need to be PCIe 1.1 or 2.0?

Any video card should be backwards compatible with any PCIe slot.

If your mother board has a 1.1 PCI-E SLOT,YOU CAN RUN A 2.0 video card with no loss in performance.However if you had an older SLI board,based on 1.1,and you ran 2 video cards based on 2.0,you may have a slight performance hit.But again,that is based on what other hardware you're running such as CPU,RAM,PSU,etc.But for the single card applicatio,no worries.
