6yo AVA Direct PC: will Core i7-920 Quad-Core 2.66GHz overclocked to 3.2GHz support GTX 950/960/770?

Hi, I have a 6 year old AVA Direct overclocked machine. The specs are:
* CPU: INTEL, Core i7-920 Quad-Core 2.66GHz overclocked to 3.2GHz, LGA1366, 4.8 GT/s QPI, 8MB L3 Cache, 45nm, 130W, EM64T EIST VT XD, Retail
* Motherboard: EVGA, X58 SLI, LGA1366, Intel® X58, 6400 MT/s QPI, DDR3-1600 24GB /6, PCIe x16 SLI CF /3, SATA 3 Gb/s RAID 5 /8, HDA, GbLAN /2, FW /2, ATX, Retail

I am looking to get a GTX 950/960/770 card to enjoy 1920x1200 FPS gameplay, but am afraid to spend $200..300 for a card that won't perform because of the CPU or motherboard I have. Getting a new machine is not an option, I would have to go with PS4 Pro I guess if new GPU won't work well with my setup.

What would be the GPU I should consider given my hardware?

Any help is appreciated a lot, thank you for reading!

Regards,
Roman.

    Any card that fits the PCIe x16 slot should work fine. Of the ones you list, the GTX 770 is the fastest. But it requires a good quality 575W or more PSU.
