Need to update my video card to handle my new Monitor:

Processor AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight CoreProcessor
Memory 28.0 GB
AMD ATI Radeon HD 7800 Series 2GB

New Monitor is a Samsung Ultra-wide monitor with WQHD resolution 3440 x 1440

The video card can't handle the higher resolution and I want to upgrade
but do not what my motherboard can handle. Any suggestions on what to buy to upgrade?

Thank you in advance.

You never listed your motherboard or PSU? Please list them so I can help further. Also for 1440P a Vega 56 or GTX 1070 would be good for that. If you wanna save money then a RX 590 but if you have money to burn then a 1080 TI or RTX 2080

* That FX Series will need upgraded soon enough. But it's fine for now( Not the greatest CPU)

Upgrade that power supply before you do anything. Use a 750W with a GPU upgrade, otherwise your system will end up in flames .....

Looks like I am better off to buy a new PC instead.
