Any Nvidia gpu from the 560 up thru the newest will work I think..

FSB driven?

If you want strong DP for MW you'll need an old AMD card, 7970s & 280Xs are the best for MW. But if you play games they obviously get beaten by many modern cards.
(I happened to see today in AnandTech's bench that an HD 7970 is slightly faster than a GTX 960 in most games).
Team AnandTech - SETI@H, Muon1 DPAD, F@H, MW@H, A@H, LHC@H, POGS, R@H, Einstein@H, DHEP.

Main rig - i7 4930k @4.1 GHz, RX 580 8 GB, 16 GB DDR3 1866, Win 7 64bit
2nd rig - Q9550 @3.6 GHz, HD 7870 XT 3GB(DS), 8 GB DDR2 1066, Win 7 64bit
