Windows 7: Will PCI-E 2.1 card work with P5L-MX (1.0)?

Will PCI-E 2.1 card work with P5L-MX (1.0)?

I know that most 2.1 video cards are backwards compatible with 1.0, but not in all cases.
So I just wanted to see if someone can help me out.
Will a Sapphire HD 5450 1GB card work with my Asus P5L-MX motherboard?
And I know that IF it works that performance will drop to 1.0 compatibility, but I assume that it will still be better than my MSI Geforce 210 PCI-E 2.0 card?
Thanks in advance.

Yes it will work. Even at 1.0 I doubt that you would notice any difference if it was run in a 2.0/2.1/3.0 slot.
