PCI-e vs. PCI-e 2.0

The graphix card I have is a pci-e but this motherboard syas it has a pci-e 2.0 , which I dont know anything about.

ASUS P5Q Pro Socket 775 Mainboard P45 CORE 2 DUO QUAD - eBay (item 290291496216 end time Feb-03-09 04:07:30 PST)


Will my graphix card still work in the pci-e 2.0 or do I have to worry about ANOTHER incompatability issue?

Also Im assuming the blue connector is the PCI-e 2.0 so is the black one standard PCI-e?

Sorry two more.

1.What are the little white slots for?

2.And as far as the 8 phase power,does this require a new kind of power supply or MB power supply connector, or will my current power supply be fine?

pci-e 2.0 16x/8x is compatible with all (from 1.0 to 2.0)pci-e 16x/8x graphics cards. it´s the same slot but faster connected internally.

those short pci-e slots are 1x or 4x slots, for firewire-cards, usb-cards, and stuff like that.

you´ll only need a psu with a 20-pin main-connector and a (4-pin) P4-connector, with 360W or up. for absolute stability and future graphics-cards it should have a 24-pin main-connector, a (8-pin) EPS-12V-connector and 500W - 600W.
