Well,

If you put a PCI-E x8 speed card in a PCI-x16 slot it will just slow down to x8 speeds...

So you can pretty much get any board and it will work fine. By the way that's not server based hardware, you don't get a server with an i5 in it.

P.S just go with a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H, it's got the IR power phase on it which is great and they have epic VRMs

You'd best get a guarantee that any PCIe x16 isn't a "graphics only" slot before buying it. You can also get boards with open ended PCIe slots sometimes so you can put an x8 board into an x4 slot.

If it's a PCI-E card it'll work in the 2nd PCI-E x16 slot... It's the same for all boards,

The only slot that could be reserved is slot 0

Indeed, if it's got 2 x16 slots the second can't be 'graphics only' since that's just about displaying POST messages.
