Geforce Nvidia GTX 570 is the only high market card that I have seen with pci-e 2.0. My motherboard supports no higher then pci-e 2.0, So this wouldn't cause bottle necking would it? Currently I have a Nvidia GT 210 and want to upgrade to the maximum for my motherboard and CPU which is an Intel Core 2 Duo 8400 3.0 GHz. Thank You

wrong pcie is backwards compatible so you can stick any pcie 3.0 card and it will work in a pcie 2.0. pcie 3.0 is not being fully utilized by any new card out yet so the pcie 2.0 will not bottleneck but your cpu. depending on the psu you should go for 7750 as it requires minimum wattage with no additional power cables
