Yes. According to the Wiki article on PCI Express:

PCIe 2.0 is backward compatible with PCIe v1.x. Graphic cards and
motherboards designed for v2.0 will be able to work with v1.1 and v1.0. In
some cases it is possible that a PCI-E 2.0 card will not work correctly on a
PCI-E 1.0a slot. This is only limited to certain video cards.

I'm using a DG965WH, and as far as I can tell from the Intel docs,
it's strictly PCI-E 1.0.

Make sure your power supply is up to it. Most no-name supplies only
provide 75% of the listed output, so a 600W ps is not unreasonable.
A 400W will not do.
