The GX650 was summarized by HardOCP as a "polished turd in a box." Treat it like a 550W PSU, and you'll probably still be okay. That's enough for a HD7950, but if you planned on adding another one, replace the PSU first.
To your specific question though, I'd probably choose an Asus board, especially if you plan on a relatively high OC. If your OC will be none-mild, ASRock would be good too, or one of the better MSI boards (I don't trust their cheap ones for OC).

Any Z87 based motherboard will do the job and allow you a decent oc.
No need for a high priced enthusiast motherboard unless you are into record seeking overclocks or triple monitor gaming.
Pick your favorite brand.
Do not exclude a M-ATX size, they are usually a bit cheaper.
