if it's a PCIe 2.0 slot, then it will fit a card which supports 3.0. As far as I know there is no card which is ONLY compatible with PCIe 3.0. Most of them, most high-ends, are PCIe 2.0 + 3.0 supported. But you will need an Ivy CPU to make use of the 3.0 anyway.

So, a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot will be able to handle the new cards which come with 3.0 as well.
