  1. Do you mean a pci express 1.0 or 1.1 x16 slot?

    Which model is your motherboard? Let me know and I'll check which version it is.

    With a few ifs and buts MOST 2.0 graphics cards will work in MOST older versioned slots. I myself am running a GTX 560 Ti in a pci-e 1.1 x16 slot.

    All it means is that less bandwidth will be available for the card, that being said graphics cards barely fill the bandwidth of a 1.1 so it makes almost no noticeable difference to performance running a 2.0 card in a 1.1 slot.

    With pci-e to the best of my knowledge if it fits in the slot then it works.
  2. Best answer
    There are no issues installing a PCI-e 2.0 card in a PCI-e 1.0 slot. However, there are issues with installing a PCI-e 2.1 card in a PCI-e slot.

    So the answer is yes.
