You didnt mention your budget. I would go with nothing less than a x60 in any of the Nvidia line of GPUs (even more so, I personally buy the x70's) This will add a little more "future proofing" to your machine for not much more $$. Generally, anything below the x60's (460,560, & 660) isnt considered a true gaming gpu but the term "gaming" is relative -- relative to what you are looking to do/ play with it.

I just realy would like to know what the bst graphics card I could get that would be compatible with the motherboard and the processor It dosent have to be NVidia. some one told me that I have pcie express 2.0 and gpu's with pcie 3.0 wouldn't be compatible with my motherboard. my budget £100 to £150 max

You can run any card you want, just make sure its running at x16. PCI-E is backwards compatible so you can run a 3.0 card on your 2.0 MB. Any POTENTIAL bandwidth limitations would be hidden by your CPU anyway. Youre asking for something that is compatible, and they all are with your setup (however you didnt mention what kind of power supply you have)

The problem you WILL run into is other components limiting your new GPU. If I were you, I would buy the best GPU you can afford with the intentions of eventually upgrading the rest of your machine. If that is not something you want to do, then buy the best card that wont be held back by your current configuration.

Id go with a minimum 650 GTX, but make sure you have at least a 400w PSU
