It will work but...

Unless your MB supports PCI Express 2.0, you won't get the performance gain that you would with a newer board. But still, newer graphics boards have faster GPUs, faster memory, and frankly thats much more important than the bandwidth gain, which frankly is theoretical.

So a PCI Express 2.0 card will work.
