Is it possible to put a 1x pci-e sound card in a 16x pci-e slot?

Since my 16x pci-e slot is 2.0 will it give better latency? or is there no difference using the normal 1x pci-e slot available on my motherboard?

My mobo layout:

I believe there is no difference. On my motherboard it doesnt have a 1x PCI-e and i was going to buy a asus xonar sound card...i was told that it would work in a 16x PCI-e with no problems at all.

16x is backwards compatible with 1x
