yes u can put in a GTX 600 series or a Radeon HD 7900 Series that's PCI-Express but they will only run PCI-Express 2.0 not 3.0 since the motherboard as far as ino don't support PCI-Express 3.0

They are backward compatible, it may be change with Kepler, or if you SLI or Xfire 2 of them, but actual single pci-e 3.0 GPU don't run faster on PCI-e 3.0,
