Well it needs to be a PCI Express 2.0. According to Newegg there is only one, that's PCI Express 2.0 (in the 600 series) and that one cost $549.00. Where do you get your computer parts from?Is a GTX 560 (fermi) good enough? its $164.00 at Newegg
You can use a PCI-E 3.0 card in a PCI-E 2.0 slot, so don't worry about it. The only difference that I know is about bandwidth, where the 3.0 specification allows more, and only the higher end GPUs will exhaust a 2.0 one.
Starch1ld I like Nvidia because there are more driver updates than the AMD cards have.

Well it's my brother who wants a Nvidia card. Even if it cost more money. I'm not sure how to proceed. Can I get a PCI-E 3.0 card and put it into a PCI-E 2.0 slot Bruno_007? Starch1l9? Sxooter?
(...) The results couldn’t be any clearer: the HD 7970 doesn’t benefit in any way from a PCI-E 3.0 link to the CPU. (...)
