PCI-E slot and PCI-E 2.0 cards

Hi all,

I was just wondering if I bought say a GTX 260 which is PCI-E 2.0 or maybe an HD5770 which is PCI-E 2.1, how will that effect the card if I plug int into my P5N32-E SLI Motherboard which has PCI-E 1 (i guess it could be called 1), will there be a loss in performance, or does it make a difference, if so, is it in certain games or constant loss.
