If you're shelling out for that GPU, you shouldn't bottleneck it through the processor. I'd say MINIMUM a 4600+X2 with good cooling to overclock it. The stock fan might be ok for overclocks, but I never used it. I use an Arctic Cooling freezer 64 pro for mine. For the motherboard, I dunno. I use an ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe wifi edition, which is a great board, but it doesn't have the best overclocking features. It only has whole number multipliers, where my brother's s939 A8N32-SLI Deluxe has multipliers in .5 increments and better RAM divider settings. Maybe someone could give you better input for the mobo.
