Which is best graphic card and motherboard to combine with intel i3-3220 processor?

sometimes we buy advanced graphics card and our processor does not utilize it fully because the processor itself is not advanced, so buying advanced and costly graphics card is wastage.

In my case i have finalized intel i3- 3220 processor, now i am looking for the best graphix card and motherboard to combine with it, so that the overall performance is the best.
So experts please suggest me the best combination asap, after your reply only i will buy. i totally like answers of this forum so waiting for your answers, will check forum in each 15 minutes to check replies.

thanks in advance.

7850

Can match a 660 in some games and cost quite a bit less.

7870

Beats a 660 most of the time and is a close competitor to the 660ti for cheaper

7950
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=67748&vpn=FX795ATDFC&m...
Beats the 660ti by quite a bit with new bios and if OC (lots of headroom) can match a 7970

Budget - 7850 (OC can be close to stock 7870) - tons of OC room
Most Utilized - 7870 (OC close to 7950) - more risky OC choice
Max card to pair with - 7950 (OC close to 7970) - tons of OC room

The MSI Radeon HD 7870 HAWK is the MSI Lightning's smaller brother. It uses the company's signature Twin Frozr II dual-fan cooler. MSI has also increased the clock speeds of the HD 7870 HAWK to 1100 MHz GPU and 1200 MHz memory.It can be overclocked to match a stock 7950 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Great price point. Great performance.Trades blows with 7870
