PCI-E question

This is more of a compatability question than an actual question. I'm building my first pc and im not sure if the gpu and mobo are compatible.

Will this motherboard: http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GA-H61MA-D3V-Intel-Micro-Motherboard/dp/B0079XWO6O  

Work with this gpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA

If I sound stupid, i'm sorry its my first pc.

yeah, it goes in the big blue slot

Lol. I know that. I was wandering if the pci-e was compatible.

any pcie graphics card will work in any pcie x16, wether it be 1.1, 2.0, or 3.0
