What can this motherboard support as in good video cards? I was considering a AMD Radeon 7950 but I'm not sure what I can support.

This is my motherboard.


I mainly play SWTOR so I want something that can run that on high with 100+ steady frames. I also plan to play Star Wars: Battlefront 3 when it comes out. But I'm sure if I get a video card that runs SWTOR on high with 100+ fps it will run SWBF3.

The video card I was considering getting.

Any card will be fine. It has a PCI Express x16 2.0 so any card with either 2.0 or 3.0 will support. And if you were wondering if I took a 3.0 GPU and connected it with the motherboard, there will not be any reduced performance. So you will be fine. May I know your CPU so it doesn't bottleneck the GPU.

So the AMD Radeon 7950 will work fine? Also is it a top of the line video card and what games can it run on high or max with 60-80 FPS +

Or if there is another good alternative I would be down to take the recommendation. My price maximum price range is 210-250$. Also my power supply is 550 wats. Don't plan on upgrading unless I desperately have to.

Mostly steam games maxed out. Battlefield on High is also possible at 60-80FPS.
