PCI-e 3.0 cards will run perfectly on your PCI-e 2.0 mobo, what's your budget, once you decide on a budget ask for some advice on the choice of card or have a look around for benchmarks.

With that overclock you wont run into many bottlenecks outside of seriously CPU intense games.

+1 your system can handle any card you can afford and even the best cards are not slowed down when running in a PCIE 2.0 slot.

AFAIK no even the fastest single gpu card available right now will be bottleneck by PCI-E 2.0. for your budget you can look up to GTX670. if you like Radeon card you can look for 7970 which is a bit more. just pick which ever you like. in regards to PCI-E 2.0 vs 3.0 in gaming you can refer to this article:
