I have this motherboard:

asrock x58 extreme core i7 intel x58 ddr3 quad crossfirex quad sli/A&GbE

I currently have a GEFORCE NVIDIA 9800GT video card. I would like to know what video cards I can upgrade to, or if I am maxed out on this mobo?

It has PCI EXPRESS x16

I tried going to the ASROCK website but my mobo isn't listed, prob because it is older. I have a pretty good power supply 750w high performance sli/crossfire power supply.

Don't know if you need it, but the BIOS is x58 EXTREME Version P2.90
CPU is Intel Core I7 3.07 8gb memory

Any help would be appreciated.

*** Also is my CPU as much as it could be?

The i7-950 is right up there with the big Phenom IIs and 6 core FXs for gaming. So you should be able to use just about any gfx card you have the budget for. The highest end cards may become slightly CPU bottle necked under certain circumstances, but it wouldn't be a deal killer IMO.
