Radeon HD 6850 question

I'm currently ordering parts to build my second build(its been atleast 5 years since my first)
I've been looking at different video cards, the best bang for my buck seems like the 6850.
The 6850 is a PCIe 2.1 x16 does that mean a mobo that supports PCIe 2.0 x16 will not work with this video card? I've been looking any many different mobos and havent seen any labeled PCIe 2.1
