any PCIe GPU will do the trick...
but only ATI brand if you wish to utilize the ATI Hybrid CrossFireX this board (seems) to support.
how big is your case?
what games you playing?
how much can you spend?

what is your processor? Games you play? What is your budget? What power supply do you have and are you willing to replace it if required? What resolution is your monitor?

Answer those questions and then I can make a recommendation.

Well that would depend on a few things like which games and which PSU you are using and also your budget

I agree. For most games @1080p 560ti will do you just fine. Some good deals to be found on them too right now.

Whatever you get make sure your power supply is up to the task before installing the graphics card.
