What CPU do you have and what games? My answer is going to be the 670 or 680 no matter what.

Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 is the motherboard... you have a a pcie x16 slot, so your motherboard will be compatible with those graphics cards.

Also, what brand model is your power supply?

680 without a doubt. Crysis 3 maxed with 8xMSAA kills my SLI 580.
