Hi guys, back again on more compatibility questions.
I am assembling my first system and my mobo has PCI Express 2.0 slots, but my graphics card wants a PCI Express 2.1 slot? Me being a n00b but could someone explain this to me please?

It will go into the 2.0 slot, don't worry about it. 2.1 is supposed to be some kind of preparation for PCI-E 3.0, but it doesn't affect compatibility.
