You're good. PCI-e 2.1 and 2.0 are, for the end user, basically the same thing. Besides, there is backwards compatibility for all PCI-e devices.

I vote HD6870, because it's better, even on PCI-e 2.0 as Alfaa stated.

Even the newer cards can't fully utilize the PCI-e 2.0, except the dual-GPUs. So, motherboard won't be an issue, grab the 6870.
