I have a PCI Express slot that is 5.0V vltage supported. Data bus width 1x or x1 whatever that means.

Can I buy any PCI Express card for this pc and it will work or do I need to look at other configurations? What does it mean by PCI-E X16 or 2.0 X 16?
Don't want to fry something.

I guess I have the X16 or longer one. So the voltages doesn't matter. I could of spent a week on that document?
