Default Using my Evga 680i SLI will a 4870 work

I was thinking about getting a ATI 4870 and then I got to wondering will it work with my Evga 680i SLI,since it is not PCIx2.0.Plus will a 4870x2 work with my Evga 680i SLI since it will just be useing one PCIe slot.

They both should work, I have much older SLI board and it works ok
with HD 4870 and the HD 4870x2 is single slot card.
