PCIe 2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.0 and very few card can use all of the 1.0 bandwidth so don't worry about that.

New egg has several options

Could you specify what the card was. I've just bought a Galaxy 9600gt low profile card thatis too long to fit with the passive heat sink fitted in the factory.

Where any further mods to the box needed in order to fit your card?

Thanks

passive heatsinks are a lot larger than active ones you will either have to look up the dimensions from the manuatrurer to find one that fits, and that applies even to tower cases. Or select one with an active heatsink. Further passive heatsinks ONLY work in cases with adequate airflow, which i doubt you have in a low profile case.
