Hi im gonna buy a radeon hd6770 1gb GDDR5 video card and a core 2 duo e8400 or pentium dual core e5800 next month(no plans for a sandy bridge CPU)....Im a mid range gamer...My motherboard says it has a pci-e x16 slot but it doesnt say the version....So will the card be compatible with my mobo as the card is gen 2.0 of pci-e x16 and also GDDR5...Will it interfere with my RAM which is DDR3??

It will run on a PCI-E 1.0 slot but at the slower speed.  I would bump the RAM up to at least 4 GB if you can.  Any way you can find out which MB you have?

 

I have a 6770 and it will play Guild Wars 2 on max settings at 50-100 fps, although I have an AMD FX-8350 and 16 GB.  I think the 1.0 slot and your RAM/CPU will be the limiting factors.  My old Phenom x4 and 4 GB of RAM played Guild Wars 2 good on mid settings.  Sorry, I can't give you any advice on the games you play.  The 6770 will be the best one to transfer to a newer computer in the future.

Ok in the next month my dad is going to replace the mobo with a new one for his programming,video editing as well as for my gaming...It will be a LGA1155 supporting 16GB of dual channel RAM...Then i'll be buying an i3,2GB more of RAM,a 400W PSU and then i'll pair it with the HD 6670....Then will it be worth? (I'll not be bumping with socket LGA775 anymore)

 

Thanx in advance again Bleepingcomputer and thanx a lot dgdawg...i'll look up to you in future...
