Looking up video cards and came across the 8800 GT that I really like. I noticed that not only does it say it's PCI Express 2.0 compatible, but also x16. I'm not certain if my x16 slots are 2.0, but does that matter?

pci-e 1 video cards/slots are x16 vs 8x agp

the revision 2 supports higher bitrate but all this is backwardsly compatible, the older pci-e cards work in newer slots and vice versa

the performance difference of using revision 1 mobo with revision 2 card would be minimal

you are safe with that card as long as your computer has enough power and cooling

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
