All boards that have a PCI-e slot support 2.0 and x16

Yes, because GDDR2 is old and slow.. (not to be confused with DDR2)

Either of the other two cards I recommended are fine

Which one?

The Earthwatts is really powerful, watts really don't matter, amps on the 12v rails do... This PSU has tons of them
