Default Can someone please help?

I bought my GPU yesterday, An ASUS GTX560 TI CU II(830Mhz Version). I am a little concerned as the tech guy at store where I purchased my GPU stated that my MOBO and CPU will be holding performance back big time. He went so far as to say that because my MOBO only supports PCI-X16 1.0 my GPU is not able to run at top performance as the Bus lane is too small. Also that if I just were to get a MOBO with PCI-16 2.0 I would see a huge performance jump??
I just ran Heaven Benchmark, Everything at stock settings in the menu at 1074X768 DX11 I scored FPS:67.3 And got a score of 1694? Is that score about right for my GPU? Or is my MOBO/CPU really holding things back?
I hope this is in the right section. But i am feeling that I didn't get a very good performance jump for the 450 dollars I spent on new PSU and GPU.
System spec: Intel i7 2600k, Gigabyte GTX 570 Super Overclock, Kingston DDR3 2X4 GB sticks, ASUS P8P67 PRO, Cooler Master 700 watt PSU, 750GB*2 Sata,SATA III 1TB HDD Acer 24 Widescreen, Antec 300, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
