Yes, just like USB 3.0 will work in USB 2.0 slots. Sata 3 will run in Sata 2 slots.

That single card is a beauty, and faster than both your GTX 550 Ti cards in SLI. I want one.

It's a great motherboard as well ( and you can run dual GTX 660 Ti cards on it as well if you wish.

This motherboard is limited to PCIe 2.0 though, so it will run the new card in that specification. It really is not an issue though, as you practially won't notice the difference between PCIe 2.0 and 3.0. The x16 card slots are the same.

So have fun with it.
