    PCIe 2.0 will work in a regular slot, it just negotiates the maximum available speed

    As steevo stated above, the PCIe 2.0 x16 card will work in any motherboard with a normal PCIe x16 slot.

    The only motherboards (so far) supporting PCI-E 2.0 are boards with Intel's X38/48 chipset, AMD's RD770/780 and nVIDIA's nForce 7xx.
    Just say the model of your motherboard :)
