Maybe. The only source for incompatibility I know is that PCI Express
2.1 allows for up to 150 W power from a PCI-E slot, up from 75 W in 2.0.
So, if you have the videocard in hand, its rated power is over 75 W and
it has no extra power connector => not compatible with a PCI-E 2.0
motherboard. No idea if anyone has made such a videocard though.
