Is a PCI-E16 1.0 Mobo compatible with a PCI-E 2.0/3.0 video card?

My motherboard manual says i have a "PCI express" video card slot. but it doesn't say if 1.0 or 2.0 or 3.0. I'm assuming it's 1.0 because the motherboard is a bit old and the video card as well(Nvidia geforce 7300 se/7200 gs) If i'm right and it's a PCI-e 1.0 motherboard, what video card can be compatible with it? 1.0 or 2.0 or 3.0? I want to buy a new video card.

I would think so. I have an old Intel DP35 MOBO and put in a GTX 560 last year and all is good.

If it is 1.0, you can use 2.0 but will lose some speed. The 2.1 and 3.0 may work or may not...
