Although this motherboard is crossfire compatible I would like to use only one GPU. I have been looking at the ASUS GTX650TIB ( http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... ) and wondering if it is compatible with my motherboard ( http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... ). If it is not compatible can you recommend a good GPU around $200 that will be a powerhouse and work with this motherboard.

If there are any other conflicts in my build please let me know! This is my first PC build and I did it all myself and now that the parts are in shipping I am nervous!

all your parts are fine they will work together. the 650 ti card is a mid range card.
if you can stop that order for the card i would for a little more money there are better cards on parts picker.

I have looked at the chart you provided for frame rates and frame rate changes and changed it to BF3 since that will be the game I am playing most. The radeon HD 7970 Ghz edition was still on top but I do not understand the difference between the Ghz edition and the normal 7970. The 7970 is around $300 which I can afford but is there a better card for $300? Sorry I changed my price range but this is my final budget change.
