Anything upto 150. I've been looking at this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-7870-Radeon-DirectCU-Graphics/dp/B008A1C252/

Also do these big gpus fit on micro atx mobos ok? The back of the card will be very close to the ram slots.

Thanks

The 7870 is a decent midtier card. Check the dimensions of the card but it should it in a matx board just fine and not interfere with the ram slots. How do I know? I have a 670 in my matx motherboard and it fits just fine.

Usually the only thing that will interfere with the RAM slots is a big CPU cooler.

I'd worry more about the case and PSU instead of the motherboard.
Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback
