  2. Yes it will work. Your PCIe lanes are 2.0 and the 1030 are PCIe 3.0. But it should not matter. PCIe 2.0 x16 is the same as 3.0 x8 and that is more than enough bandwidth.

  3. But the msi website says, interface: PCI Express 3.0 x16 (uses x4).
    Would that be fine?

    That is even better. 3.0 is twice as fast as 2.0. So PCIe 3.0 x4 = PCIe 2.0 x8

    So this means you will have no bandwidth limitations whatsoever.
