Does this MOBO (PCI-e 1.0) work with this Video Card (PCI-e 2.0)?

I've looked around and I think that these two are compatible, but I really want to be 100% sure before I order this. I'm trying to upgrade my brother's computer, working around the current MOBO he has. However, the PCI-e slots are 1.0, as far as I can tell, whereas all the new video cards are PCI-e 2.0.

Will this MOBO work with this Video Card?

Thank you.

Yes, your GPU choice will work with your brother's motherboard. PCIe 2.x is backwards compatible with PCIe 1.x, so they will work all together just fine :)
