My MB, gigabyte ga-z97x-ud5h-bk, has PCI-express x16 slots but no version number (too old?), but will new cards with version numbers run in them at all?
Thanks,
Ron

Yes. PCIe slots are backward compatible with previous PCIe device versions, and vice versa.

Your motherboard has these slots:

The PCIEX16, PCIEX8 and PCIEX4 slots conform to PCI Express 3.0 standard.
The PCI Express x1 slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.
