I'm looking at getting this:http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2463/radeon-r7-240.html

It says that it says that it uses a PCIe 3.0 X8 slot. I have a single PCIe X16 slot. Will this work? Will there be any limitations?

Also, will this be a good graphics card for running games? I need a low profile one to fit into my computer, so I can't get a extremely powerful one.

Can you post the motherboard model next time for a much clearer information on the PCIe interface slot? It would help members also of suggesting on what particular games you need to run.
