Is the ATI Radeon HD 5670 compatible with my motherboard PCI Express x16?

Im going to get a new graphics card - either a Powercolor Radeon hd 5670 or any other card which probably requires PCI E 2.1 x 16. My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L v1. Can anyone check out the amd.com system requirements for this card and let me know whether such a card will work in my system?
Also I have Win 7, 2 GB DDR2 Ram, Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 2.66, 2.67 GHZ and 450 W PSU.

  1. pcie 2.0 is backwards compatible so yes it will work

    Are you sure that it will work well and most importantly fit since I saw others saying that the card wont work at full speed on v1? I chose this card as my budget is only around 4000 rupees(90 USD) and I want to play games like bf3, mw3 etc. on atleast mid settings. Is my ram enough for low to mid settings as I cannot upgrade my ram?
    Also is this card preferable since it is the only one in my budget?
