Question about PCI Express x16 and 2.0?

Hi all,

I am planning to purchase a new computer with intergraded graphics, I have a old card that I am planning to install it on the new comp. My question is will it work if I install a Radeon 2600XT PCI Express x16 graphic card on a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot? does PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot only accept PCI Express 2.0 x16 card but not PCI Express x16?
