Yes, 2.0 cards are backwards compatable in 1.0 slots.

400 watt PSU? That limits your choices of graphic card. What kind of card are you planning to get?

You also have a slimline, so you'll need a half height/low profile card.

Not even close badtaylor. This is the fastest LP card I saw on newegg.

GTS450, currently out of stock. Fastest in stock card was this one.

5670, $84 shipped, $54 after rebate. The 5670 is much faster then the GT430. (even the GT240 is faster gaming then the GT430)

The 5670 uses around 60W max, so if you have a weak PSU it might not be the best choice. If I remember this thread correctly you have a 400W, so you should be fine. If you had a weak 200W PSU, then the 5570 is a better choice.
