Default PCIex1 question

I want to put a tv tuner in my puter. It's pci2x1 interface. That wouldn't matter that my pciex16 card is being used is it? I just wanted to make sure. I thought maybe that you only can use one pcie slot or the other; not both.

My puter:
CPU - INTEL Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz
MEM - 4 GB (1BGX4) G.SKILL PC2 6400
HD - 2 SAMSUNG 500GB 7200 RPM
OS - Windows Vista 64Bit
