You can get a GTX280/260 if you want to make it easy with the nVidia chipset. As far as ATi cards you can get the HD4870X2, HD4870, HD4850. As far as processors go you can get a 6400+X2, 6000+X2, or a 5400+X2. You could also buy them in BE if you like to OC.

It means its performance will be slowed down because other parts can't keep up with it. So long you don't run it at a super low resolution it shouldn't be bottlenecked while gaming. Mainly because most games are still written with a single thread in mind.
