Buying new video card, will it fit?

  1. I was looking at computers for a friend to buy and found a pretty cheap setup but he'd have to upgrade the video card. If you bought a pci express 2.0 card does the motherboard have to have "2.0" slots or do the cards just fit in the regular pci express slots?
