The board has 2 PCI-E x16 slots so yes it will work with that motherboard.

Make sure your power supply has 2 PCI-E connectors and enough power to handle it though.

Performance wise, they're pretty close.

What brands are they?  If one is a cheaper brand than the other, I'd go for the non cheap one.

What do you mean by disadvantages?  Both are very capable cards.

For example HD5850 graphic card is pci2.0 and my motherboard only supports pci1.0 isn't it?

It really comes down to personal preference which brand you go with.  I actually have a Sapphire 5850 myself and have been very impresed with it.  Had it for 6 months and it hasn't died yet.  I've had another Sapphire in the past and that didn't die before I upgraded.  

I've never owned an XFX card so can't really vouch for them.  Performance wise they will be that close it doesn't matter.

Do you want Call of Duty?  If not, maybe fork out the extra $40 and get the Overclocked one.

What sort of games do you play?  The extra bandwidth would only really be need palying new games at a high res.

What currency are the prices in?

Those are New Zealand dollars.  The site is pbtech.co.nz

The second one might come with Call of Duty, otherwise no difference between it and the first.
The third one is for overclocking.
The fourth one is for Crossfire support - 2 cards in the same machine if your machine and computer supports Crossfire See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATI_CrossFire
The fifth one seems to have a modified cooler on it and seems to be just an updated version of card four.

Does PCI 2.0 matter to my motherboard? because my motherboard is quite old now.

That is PCI Express 2.0

Usually backwards compatible.  PCI-E 2 cards should work in PCI-E 1 slots which your board seems to have.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_2.0 for more information.
