Default pci express 2.0 graphics card on motherboard thats not.

I heard that you can have a graphics card thats pci express 2.0 x16 and a motherboard that has pci express x16. I want to know whats going to happen, like a huge lost in game play, or not going to look as great, that sort of stuff.

Newegg.com - Intel BOXDG35EC LGA 775 Intel G35 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Graphics card:
Newegg.com - EVGA 384-P3-N966-TR GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
