I recently built a computer but left the graphics out to add on later, I'm adding it soon but I need some opinions.

First, I have a PCI 1.0 slot, I read 2.1 can mess with it, but 2.0 & 3.0 work.
So i found this http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Product ID N82E16814131481

Second, My CPU is an AMD Athlon II X2 270, will this bottleneck horribly?
I'm not planning on playing many heavy games at all but my intergrated graphics plays no games :p  it sucks so bad minecraft has 3-5 on far when in a sever sometimes :p  so if I can get 25+ fps ill be happy.

Thanks everyone :)

Should work fine in a 1.0 slot. Are you just playing minecraft? If it's not for anything heavy you don't need a 7750, something cheap around $50 or less would work I think. If you absolutely must get a 7750... CPU will probably bottleneck it a little, doubt it'll be a problem for playing minecraft. I used to use a 5450 which is retardedly cheap and it was playable, I think I had atleast 25-ish FPS using an AMD Athlon II X4 635. Btw, a 7770 is a lot better than a 7750 for like $20-30 more.

Its mainly for minecraft and school stuff :)  the 5450's I look at are all PCI 2.1 which I've heard have issues with 1.0 so I gotta get a 7000 series. Or go nvidea but I like the radeons better from what I've read :) 

I may attempt battlefield 2 and cod 4 but I don't have my hopes high for those :D
