Default PCI 2.0 board with a PCI 3.0 GPU

My GT280 bit the dust after 6 years and I'm looking for another GPU.

I'm looking to get the ......

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2765-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card

Will it work out okay?

It's been a while since I have built a machine

Thanks

PCI-e 3.0 cards aren't at the point where they benefit from the added bandwidth over 2.0 so, yes, it will work just fine.
