Does ASRock Z77 Pro3 support AMD Radeon HD 7000 series?

So I'm going to make a gaming PC, I don't have much money, and because i'm getting i5-3570k and I discovered this low price (and i think good) motherboard, ASRock Z77. First of all, Is it good for gaming? Im planning on playing games like BF3 or Farcry 3, games that require quite much graphics, so i'm thinking of AMD Radeon HD 7750. Does this motherboard support such a graphics card?

    Does it support it. Yes. The great thing about PCI-e is that you can put a PCI-e 3.0 in a 1.0 slot and it works no problem and visa versa. Its backwords compatible so don't worry about Video cards so much since most motherboards sold today support at 3.0 and 2.0 at the very least. Great thing about the HD7750 is it doesn't require a 6or 8 pin 12V for extra power so you don't have to spend a ton of money on a high end PSU with 4-8 of these 12V connectors. Not as for as the HD7750 goes for gaming its not bad. Don't expect it to play at 60fps at 1080p though. At least not on high end games.

    Thanks, anyway I wasn't expecting to play at 1080p, how much fps is regular gaming?
  3. well the 7750 will game on medium settings at 1080p... it should come close to max settings at any game at 720p.
  4. as far as FPS goes you really won't know unless you know someone with the same exact build, but to me if you can get 20FPS then you won't notice much lag. 30 is where most people shoot for and anything higher is best.
