Is the AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics card compatible with the ASUS M5A97 motherboard?

Hi Lewis,

 

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.
