SAS card

i have a question on PCI e slots,
i am looking for a LTO-5 autoloader and spoke to couble of manufactors.
Each says different.
i  have a server with PCI express slots , i was told that 6GB SAS HBA will not fit into that Slot and i need PCI ge 2 slots.
i spoke to another lto-5 manufactor and he said if my server can fit into a SAS card then i should be ok.
my question will 6GB SAS card run into PCI express slots or we need a gen2 slot?

No you dont need gen2.  PCIe is fine.
