  1. It will work. PCI-E is backwards compatible. No idea about how worse the performance will be compared to a 3.0 slot but I doubt it will be by much. The 7950 doesn't even saturate a 2.0 slot
  2. You will barely lose any performance at all:

    Thanks, master. This chart is really useful. Now I know that i won't lose performance more than 5%. I have 1.0 x16
