how much is my motherboard restricting me?

So here's the deal. I'm going to upgrade my video card but didn't know if my old motherboard is restricting my potential. I have a gateway sx2802-03 from 2009. It has pci 2.0 rather than 3.0 and other deatails I'm unsure of. Basically I want to know if my "weak" mono will bottleneck the improvements of my gpu. I have a core 2 quad 2. 5ghz Q8300, 6gb ddr2 800mhz, and a 600w (dual 19A 12V rails).
