Your GPU will do pretty decently at that resolution. System looks decent and balanced, and the 1055T is worth overclocking if able. Is your motherboard the asus m4a78lt-le or the asus m4a78lt-M le?

Do you own this system yet?

Don't worry about PCI-E 3.0, a 6850 won't lose more than ~1-2% (if anything) performance on a PCI-E 1.0 16x slot. :)

The 6850 will play all games maxed out at the moment @ 720p, the limiting factor in lower res is your cpu. You should definetely overclock it because it's an older and inferior architecture compared to Sandy Bridge, and a clock of 2.8Ghz is kinda low these days.
Buy yourself a new cooler and you should easily get to it 3.3Ghz.
