I am planing to upgrade from onboard video card to a new one specificly HD 5670

my HP P6230F has this mobo
PCIe slot is V 2.0

I heard alot of rumors that video cards with v2.1 interface will not work and compatible on PCIe mobo slot v 2.0
So I am very confused and worry
is that right or not??

You'll be fine. PCI-e 2.1 cards only have problems with PCI-e 1.x slots.
