  1. Yes. PCIE 2.0, 2.1 is backward compatible
  2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express
    PCIe 2.0 motherboard slots are fully backward compatible with PCIe v1.x cards. PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v2.0 will work with the other being v1.1 or v1.0a.
  3. so will these cards get the bandwith required??
  4. YES!
    actually it would be like a pci-e x16 slot running a x8 mode; which is enough for those cards.
