Can you put a PCI express 3.0 video card, like one of the nvidia 670's and above, onto a motherboard that has only PCI express 2.0 expansion slots?

Yes, though you won't get PCIe 3.0 speeds.

I dont think there is anything you can buy that will. has any video card been able to? considering that you can run multiple video cards on the bus and still not fill it.
