TRENDING NOW: MSI teases its Z170A XPOWER Gaming Titanium Edition motherboard
Ask the Experts Question: Will an AMD Radeon HD 7970 work on the ASUS M5A97 motherboard?
Is my ASUS M5A97 motherboard capable of taking an AMD Radeon HD 7970 video card?
Is the AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics card compatible with the ASUS M5A97 motherboard?
This is actually a question close to something we've answered previously, I had to double check that I wasn't answering this question twice. But, yes - your ASUS M5A97 is definitely more than capable of taking an AMD Radeon HD 7970 GPU.
You can even CrossFire the HD 7970 if you wanted to, but a single HD 7970 is actually more than capable for most games out right now, even games like Battlefield 3 or Crysis 3.
