Well the 3000+ label is given because the Athlon 64 3000+ is as fast then a P4 3.0GHz with HT... if not faster.

I strongly recommend the Athlon 64 3000+ 939 Socket, because it is very overclockable.

As far as Asus I recommend this board:

No it isn't. You can put any PCI Express card into that board. ATI or Nvidia. It doesn't require Nvidia cards.

You really don't need an SLI board because SLI is very unstable. It means to run two graphics cards at once. It is good for gaming, but so is the other one I said.

A radeon 128? That's an extremely old card. You probably want either a Nvidia Geforce 6600GT or ATI x700.

Overclocking basically means taking a 2.0GHz CPU past its speeds that it is marketed for. Like to 2.4GHz for example.
