So my GA A55M DS2 Motherboard has this PCIE 2.0 GPU slot that currently has a AMD Radeon HD 6450 fitted in. My plan is to buy a GT 1030, but when I read the description of multiple GT 1030s that I am planning to buy, they both say PCIE [I/F] PCI-E 3.0 Will the GPU that has PCIE 3.0 in its description work with the motherboard with the PCIE 2.0 slot?

yes

it is backwards compatible



of course nothing in life is guaranteed

the bios may be incompatible with newer cards, the case may be too small for the card, etc etc
