I'm planning to buy a new GPU for my aged motherboard (its last BIOS update was in 2008).
It supports pci-e 1.1 x16. Its supposed to carry me over until I get a completely new system. Could anyone give me a suggestion for a DX11.1 graphics card that could run fine with this board.
I thought about an amd7770 but people have reported trouble getting it to run on pcie 1.1 supporting boards.
Ideally I want a card that could run games like AC4, upcoming AC5, Crysis 3 at medium to high settings @720p without being overly power hungry.

Any suggestions?

But are you positive that there will be no issues with the 1.1 pci-e port? I've heard that new AMD cards in particular have compatibility issues with it...
