I want to put this gpu on my pc:
This graphics card features 1GB on-board memory and 192 processors for realistic visuals. NVIDIA CUDA and PhysX technologies provide an enhanced, dynamic gaming experience.
I have a PCI express 16x so it should fit. But I have seen this same GPU on amazon and it says its a PCI express 2.0. so my question is. Will this exact gpu fit in my PCI express 1.0 pc? Maybe here hey just forgot to inform that it is 2.0? thanks!

As long as your power supply and case airflow are sufficient, yes. PCI Express 2.0 refers to the revision of the PCI Express technology and it is backwards compatible with PCI Express 1.0. PCI Express slots are either x1 (smallest) or x4 (small) or x8/x16 (regular size), so you should be fine with your x16 slot unless there is a hardware problem. Research your motherboard and power supply before you buy.
