Default quick question re: graphics card

I'm considering upgrading my Windows machine. It has been running great for several years but now I need a few more things, mainly TB3 connectivity, thus a new mobo is needed. I'm upgrading from an old to new gigabyte MOBO. I'm curious if I can bring over my older graphics card to my new setup. I've looked through the system specs for this on avid's site but, as of yet, have not found anything useful.

I am currently using an NVIDIA GeForce GT 520.

PCI-Express x16 Gen 2 (the potential new MOBO is PCIE Gen 3.0)
Memory Bandwidth = 8gb /s
Graphics Clock = 830MHz
Processor Clock = 1660 MHz
Memory interface = 64 bit
Total available Graphics = 10214 MB

Will this jive? I'm currently running pro tools 2019.6 on my older setup with this card and having no graphics issues.

Thanks in advance for your help!
