I would go for any of those except for the top one as your motherboard doesn't support pci 2.1.

Why not? My cpu is ok right? Is it because of my motherboard? Things like that will help me decide if I need to try and build my own :3

My friend has almost the same specs as me only difference is his video card, but hes able to handle almost all games at high-ultra

You would need a whole new PC to play games at the highest settings.

Ok well I don't think I will get a new pc, 1 last question though.

SAPPHIRE Ultimate Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (100326UL) - Newegg.com

Is this compatible? Would I be able to get this

Not necessarily true. You can install a PCIe 3.0 card in a 2.0 slot. Why shouldn't one be able to install a 2.1 card in a 2.0 slot?
