My motherboard is an ECS A55F-M2 (FM1 with A55 chips) and I can't find anywhere whether it supports PCI-E 3.0 or not. Also, I can't find any FM1/FM2 A55, A75 nor A85 motherboard that explicitly claims support for PCI-E 3.0
So my question is: can I run an AMD HD 7750 (PCI-E 3.0) on my motherboard or on any of the chips I mentioned above? ECS official website for my A55F-M2 doesn't say that it supports anything higher than an AMD HD 6xxx (http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail...)

Also, I'd not want to upgrade to FM2 just to use a new discrete video card (I'd rather upgrade to an Intel i5 or AM3+ FX 6xxx)
