  1. its backwards compatible. it will work
  2. PCIE 3.0 and 2.0 uses the same slot. The only differences is their bus speed. So if you plug a PCIE 3.0 card in PCIE 2.0 slot, then you'll have 2.0 speed (5GT/s) instead of 3.0 (8GT/s).
  3. great thanks!
  4. all PCI-E graphics cards works with all PCI-E mother boards
