whats the best graphics card out there now ie gtx 780 etc that you can put into a Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 motherboard.

Hi all.
Thanks for the replies so far.

Ive only got a basic overclock using the asus standard software.

The CPU is the intel i7 2600k
Graphics cards 2x gtx 570 gainwood overclocked in sli
8gb of corsair vengeance ddr3 1600
Corsair power supply hx 850

Basically i want to get this ready for BF4 and Titanfall.

Using a PCI-E 3.0 compatible CPU with this, I would say as of right now, a 690 would be the single biggest card you could put in there... I think the 16x PCI-E 3.0 has more than enough bandwidth to handle it. SLI is a different matter though.

That motherboard will run any pcie based card you care to install.
The strongest currently might be a GTX690 or 7990.
The pcie speed is largely irrelevant since even these top cards are not slowed down by the older pcie2.0 spec.

That motherboard can run any GPU you put in it without any problems, even the AMD 7990 which is the most powerful graphics card right now.

But the main thing that matters that if your CPU is powerful enough to support that graphics card.

Just tell us what is your CPU that you are using and we will suggest the most powerful graphics card for that particular CPU.
