Is my mobo PCIe 1 or 2?

ok been searching this all night and kep getting conflicting info.

ok long story short my ol 8800GTS harcore died on me, now looking to get a 460 1gb card after reading about it here.

ofc its a PCIe 2 card, yah i know its backwards compatible but either way I would still like to know what my mobos slot is.

my mobo is a EVGA 132-CK-NF78 and searching for it brings conflicting info, 132-CK-NF78 A1 spec sites say no, while 132-CK-NF78 W1/TR/other random stuff says yes
problem is i can find nowhere in any system info programs if mine is A1 W1 TR ect ect

so looking in PC wizard 2010 under "Bus PCI-express" i get this info that also seems conflicting (though i am no expert)
