Hello,
Can I put a PCIE 2.1x16 graphics card in a 2.0x16 motherboard slot? Is there any harm in doing this or extra power required? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, you can put a 2.1 card in 2.0 slot, this won't harm anything

There might be issues if you tried to put a 2.1 card in an 1.0 slot, but 2.1 in a 2.0 should be good to go.
