Upgrading GPU in 5yo PC, a tech question

I bought a new PC when Diablo3 came out, some 5.5 years ago.

That worked out fine, but then last year Blizzard did an update that lets me crank up the graphics options in the game beyond the capabilities of the GPU.

Current GPU is Nvidia GTX550Ti in a PCIE 2.0 x16 slot.

So to take full advantage of the graphics in the game, I need to upgrade my GPU.

I notice that most GPU's these days are made for PCIE 3.0 slots, so my question is:
should I stick with PCIE 2.0 GPUs or will my system still benefit from the newer GPUs even though it has an 2.0 slot?

(I lost track of how these things work back when VGA was a thing :( )
