Does my mobo support PCI-Express 2.1 ?

The graphics card I was thinking of getting, Asus ATI Radeon HD 5670, says PCI Express 2.1 support. Does this mean my mobo has to support it?

My motherboard is the MSI P45 Platinum Motherboard.

    That mb isnt too old as it was released just over a year ago.
