I have an older rig sporting a phenom quad core I cpu and 8gb of ddr2 ram which is the max the mobo will support. It has sli capability for 2 nvidia gpu's.

Have been thinking of upgrading my graphics to a geforce 430 and up gpu for some time now. Unfortunatly my budget does not allow for a premium cards right now (gti,gtx) and i'm looking for a standard gt nvidia card or pair of cards that would operate on my basic 600w power supply.

If I could play bf3 at a respectable framerate at low to mid quality setting that would be awesome. Any suggestions for this setup

I would suggest you a 7750.
It will allow you to play on Medium settings with good fps.

And it will not consume much power.

my mobo's pci express x16 slots are version 1.0 so will the 7750 still operate under those restrictions???
