the dual core is probably the wrong socket, your best bet would be to start anew..

The Celeron 430 is a Socket LGA775 processor. You might want to check that the motherboard will be stable with a different processor in it.

EDIT: To answer your first question: Yes, your Celeron 430 will bottleneck pretty much any card out there.

With 8800 GTS you will get a bit bottleneck, nothing to worry about.
If i were you i would go for a cheap 8500 gt/gs or else, i would buy another rig.
