I'd rephrase this so it doesn't sound like a buying recommendation. –  MaxMackie Apr 24 '11 at 12:25

Any PCI-E card will work in that slot (2.0 cards should be backwards compatible with 1.0 slots), but the bandwidth is cut down considerably.

If you're buying it for gaming, cards made in 2007 began bottlenecking PCIe 4x. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/pci-express-scaling-analysis,1572-8.html

Might want to consider that.
