If you doubt me go to nVidia's website and compare the two.

The 7300 LE uses a PCI Express x16 slot

The 8800 GT uses a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot

But grinch, those slots aren't the same.

Be easy my friend, PCI Express 2.0 x16 is backward compatible with PCI Express x16. The only problem is the card will not run at its full capability.

Google can confirm my answer since that is where I got all this nifty information from.
