Default Lenovo K210 and Video Cards

Hi everyone,
I am kind of new to the computer field and I had a question. I have a lenovo k210 ideacentre that i bought in September of 2008 and the video chip set on it sucks. I can't even play video games that I played on my old PC that had an upgraded PCI x16 graphics card in it. I wanted to upgrade my lenovo so that I can play those old games I used to play. However I am not sure if these graphics cards will work in it. I believe I have an open PCIe slot in it but I am not sure what the difference is between that and the one that came before that (ie PCIe 1.0). I am also confused by the memory that it uses such as DDR5.

These are my top 3 choice of video cards (I am not going for a high end video card, just something that will get the job done)

Another question is, what are the things i should look for in a video card? (including the big and small details)
