    On your computer, the PCI-E is controlled by the chipset, not the actual CPU. Either way, your PCI-E is version 2.0 or 2.1.

    You can put in ANY PCI-E card, 1.1, 2.0, 2.1, 3.0. They are backwards compatible.

    If you are just looking to go dual monitor, any cheap HD6450 will do, or something used...
