1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (single at x16)
1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot (at x4 mode, 2.5GT/s)

Yes... Different speeds for each slot

You want to use the PCIe 2.0 X16 closet to CPU that runs at x16

Yes... You will get full performance usage out of a single card setup.

In a crossfire setup, you will run at x16,x4 which will show about a 5% decrease in performance from x16,x16. Typically, I don't recommend running a x16,x4 but with 5770's you will not see enough of a decrease to worry about. :)
