The P35 chipset is 2.0 capable but it's up to the manufacturer to make it available. If it's not specified as PCIe 2.0 then it most likely isn't. The X38,X48,P45 chipsets on the other hand do come with PCIe 2.0 slots... For example this motherboard:

Clearly stated as Gen 2, while your board:
It's not...

But, video cards that are 2.0 are also capable of working perfectly with 1.0 and 1.1 slots... So don't worry about it.

I like this one:

But it's $135... Full specs:
