I wouldn't worry too much about the clock the cards come with. The most important thing IMO is the cooling (both temperature and noise), then price and warranty. MSI has the best 2-fan cooling right now if I'm not mistaken.
For memory, it depends on what resolution you use. 2GB might be pushing it if you run something like 2560x1440/1600.
1) You're ok here.
2) 660 Ti/760.

The board is PCIe 2, your processor is still very good, and your memory is a good speed: so none of these things are issues.

Intel massively improved the floating point performance between the 1st and 2nd gen i CPUs, but I don't think it's too much to be concerned about.
I personally prefer Nvidia, so the GTX 760 would be the alternative to the R9 270X. It's a little bit more expensive, but it's a faster card as well.
