Choosing a new Gigabyte mono to speed up graphics

Currently have:

Mobo: Gigabyte B75M-D3h LGA 1155 with Intel Core i7 3770K @ 3.50 Ghz with Ivy Bridge

Hard drive: Hitachi HDS 721010DLE

RAM: 16 GB

Graphics: Radeon HD 7950 3GB 3DDR5 PCIE 3.0

PSU: XFX Pro 750 Watt Full modular

Thinking I need to get a new motherboard because graphics are averaging 50-60 fps and I can't figure out why the fps is not higher.

Can anyone recommend the mobo I can use with the above set up to improve my graphics speed? I think I want to stay with Gigabyte.

Many thanks for your thoughts.

That is a PCIe 3.0 motherboard. There is no way to upgrade graphics performance by upgrading the motherboard unless you move up a PCIe tier - PCIe 3.0 is the highest tier available, so there is no further improvement to be made.

For example, Upgrading from PCIe 1.0 to 3.0 would yield a small improvement in graphical performance, but even that would be minor.

Sorry for the inconvenience - your fps "problems" are coming from elsewhere.

Exactly what game are you referring to, that is averaging 50-60fps? Because 60fps is, to my knowledge, the highest fps that the human eye may percieve, and so going beyond that is useless, and burdens unnecessary strain upon your GPU.

Disabling "V-Sync" in game's options will allow the fps to go beyond 60fps, but there is absolutely no reason to do this.

Thank you for your reply. I can play Minecraft at the highest quality and get 200 fps. But when I play Crysis 3 at highest quality I get 16 fps. When I play Borderlands 2 at highest quality I get 28 fps. I have turned off V-sync on all games. I would be happy running Crysis and Borderlands at 40 fps but I can't seem to get there.

You should be able to get at least 30fps on Crysis 3, and 60 on Borderlands 2.
The problem is definitely not your motherboard.
Do you have the latest drivers installer for your GPU? The latest is Beta 13.6.
And on Borderlands 2, is your fps a constant 28fps? if so, this is a refresh rate problem, as games sometimes lock themselves at 28hz on a 1080p screen.
