Question PCIe vs PCIe 2.0

Really quick question, is there a difference between a PCIe and PCIe 2.0 slot for video cards, or will a PCIe 2.0 work in my PCIe 16x slot? Just got a new Dell but it's old, but better than my other crap pc and I'm trying to upgrade the crap out of it, Thanks in advance.

Default Re: PCIe vs PCIe 2.0

I have two computers up right now. One has PCI ex 16 and the other is 2.0. Both are running GTX 260 core 216s. at the same clock speed they scored nearly the same in both 3dmark06 and vantage. Hope this helps.
