Ok so my motherboard only has a pcie 2.0 slot with a GT 640 which is obviously pcie 3.0 would there even be any improvement if i upgraded it to lets say a GTX 760 since a 2.0 slot is slower then a 3.0 slot?

A PCIe 2 slot is perfectly fine for any video card out now. The bigger question would be if your CPU can keep up with the faster video card.
