I would go for the 4350 if I were you. According to this review:
AnandTech: ATI Radeon HD 4350 and 4550: Great HTPC Solutions
It says that while the 4350 and the 4550 both support full hardware decoding of a 1080p video the 4350 can not handle 2 simultaneous video streams. So if you want to use picture in picture the second video stream will have to be handled by your CPU.

And, no a x16 PCIe 1.0 slot will not bottleneck a 4350 or a 4550.
