The best card you can get is the one you can afford. Just go to a higher series AMD card. Something in the 7000 series.

You can only put 1 video card on that board, it only has 1 PCI-Express slot

And you could always max out the memory to 16 GBs (but 8 GBs is fine)

But you might want to spend the money on a really good 550 to 650 watt Power Supply

Your board supports PC3-10600 @ 1333 MHz and that`s what you have now, so that`s what you should use. Like I said 8 GBs is fine, don`t waste money on that yet.

If a new video card is what you want, then that`s what you should concentrate on, then a good power supply with the proper power connections for the new card.

Our member Solarstarshines knows a thing or 2 about AMD cards, I will ask him to advise you, but you will have to let him know what you want to spend on a new card.

Being it is 460w there is no card you can use but the one you have
Most AMD cards from 7750 on up to the 7790 all need 500to 600w if you are willing to get a better Power supply then i would look in that direction but that is the best you'll get for that PSU

I didn't notice you wanted DDR3 those cards are kind of hard to find unless you look on Ebay or Amazon

Honestly you want a boost in performance not to go back best thing for you is to upgrade the PSU get a 7790 and call it a day the best mid card for the buck http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121727

Good choice on the card, not too expensive

And for $20 more you can step up to 2GBs
