  1. Yes hd 7850 will fit.all pci exp 1.0,2.0,3.0 are of same size just operates at different speed.hd 7850 will 100% work in that worries
  2. Everything will work fine.... but it may suffer a little memory bandwidth issues which is almost negligible..

    PCIe 3.0 is backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0. PCIe 3.0 is twice as fast as PCIe 2.0, eg PCIe 3.0 running at x8 is the same as PCIe 2.0 running at x16. Current GPU's do not saturate the lane at PCIe 2.0 x16, so you'll be fine.
