  2. Yes, it will work without any problems. If you want to know more about PCIe compatibility, read this article:

  3. Yup - PCI-e is backwards and forwards compatable and a PCI-e 3.0 card suffers no performance loss in a PCI-e 2.0 slot (absolute worst case scenario you lose like 1fps compared to a PCI-e 3.0 slot).

    You're good to go :)
  4. Yes it will be fine.

    Its compatible.
  5. Should work perfectly.
