✔ Best Answer
From the Gigabyte site:

1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x4 (PCIEX4)
2 x PCI Express x1 slots
(The PCI Express slots conforms to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)

PCIe cards are backwards compatible so a PCIe 3.0 card will work in a PCIe 2.0 slot, but it will run at the reduced bandwidth. And being that the slot runs at x4 rather than x16, the throughput will be significantly lower than what it could be. According to the chart below, a PCIe 3.0 card in a PCIe3.0 x16 slot has a throughput of 15.8GB/s, but in a PCIe 2.0 x4 slot, it only has a throughput of 2GB/s.
