    PCI speed dose not matter, if you buy a pci 1/2/3 it will run at the speed you mac supports (which might be pci 1 due to windows cards in mac funkyness, not shore tho)

    PCI 1 speed is fine even on new cards you will see almost no difference (and im talking gtx970+) so be happy.

    dont know if it works check the link provided or the big nvidia sticky

    I think it'll run at PCIe 1 @ x8 lanes, shouldn't be a problem for such a low end card I guess.

    What do you expect from the upgrade? You have a low-end office card, this is also a low-end office card, so...
