Since you have a decent PSU, I would suggest the 4770, as it is the nicest card that you mentioned, and you have enough power to not limit yourself to a PCI_E powered card.

Yes, that card will have no problem running on PCI-E 1.0. Only the most robust cards absolutely require 2.0 for full performance.

All systems have "Bottlenecks". CPu and GPU are always playing a balancing act, CPU is more than fast enough to supply a GPU, and the CPU becomes the "bottleneck". In reality, it is not a negative thing, just a matter of fact. If a CPU is not slow enough to hamper the videocard, and the videocard is the "bottleneck". Again, not a bad thing, every system must go one way or another. Upgrade one, and the other becomes the limitting factor.

Don't worry about it too much, your dual core will match to the 4770 nicely.
