Check your mobos' documentation. In there you will find a diagram showing the layout of your motherboard.

lmfo (laughing my feathers off) if you don't mind I'll use that when I get an opportunity :D 

But getting back to the business at hand. Sorry, couldn't find what version pci-e that board has, although I did find on one forum someone saying it was revision 2.1 and on windows 7 forum mention of using cpu-z to find out.

I've never used it with onboard graphics. Is the pci-e info box greyed out? Good to know.

Why do you need to know that? Just upgrade and be done with it. PCIe devices will automatically negotiate the highest speed supported by both devices, there is no point worrying about it.
