Your mobo has a pcie 3.0 x16 slot. As long as you're plugging it into that slot you can pick any card! However it is dependant on your PSU and case size. Do you know:

1 how many watts is your PSU

2 what case you have

3 what resolution your monitor is

4 your budget

Ah. In this case I'd suggest a gtx 750 ti. it uses only 11 watts more power and gives so much better gpu performance:

And check

you won't be able to get a better card without buying a better psu. And for 720p resolution you wouldnt need a better card anyway.

Go on Amazon and have a look for gtx 750ti. cheapest ones are around £90 ($140) so it's well under your budget. Just be wary of your case. If you have a standard desktop then you should be fine with any card. But if you have an odd slim case you may need a low profile gpu.
