I work in the video game industry as a 3d artist, so I do a lot of 3d work, but also enjoy playing PC games. Thanks for your time.

Not sure if my motherboard is PCIx 16/2.0 compliant, or does it matter?
Specs here,

PS 2.0
I also use a 1680x1050 monitor.
Either a GTX 260/275 or ATI 4870/90 would do fine.
