What processor? Don't just give the speed, but the model.

The best graphics card out right now is the Nvidia Titan, but if you have an old processor, it might not be worth it. Judging by your motherboard model, it probably isn't.

The titan isn't worth it period.

OP, without knowing a budget, or your power supply, I'm going to recommend a 7870xt.

I agree, but I was answering his question. The Titan is the most powerful (commonly refereed to as 'best' on these forums). I wouldn't buy it though, the price/performance ratio is not worth it to me.

We'd like to know the brand of power supply you have. If you don't have a very good one it can take a lot of components with it if it is not up to snuff. Losing everything invested. In your budget, without knowing your power supply or assuming its good quality. 7850 1gb version would suit you perfectly.

a 7870 or gtx 660 would be very good as far as your build/buget!

I second the 7850. You can put the money you'd save from a 7870/660 towards a small SSD. Everyone loves SSDs. Trust.
