No, you cannot use a PCIe 2.0 slot to install this processor.

You must purchase/acquire a motherboard that has the PROPER socket and bios support for this processor.

Here are some motherboards that will support your processor:

Your question indicates that you may want to acquire the support of a good computer support shop.
