The 146 has a multi of 10 so you need a 300FSB to get 3Ghz. The 165 has a multi of 9 ( i think) so you need a FSB of 333 to get 3Ghz. Get some OCZ Plat. Rev. 2. Some can clock up to DDR600 and up. So you will not need a divider.
Hmm...Thanks for the info..
I'm still not sure about the CrossFire mobo or not because an 1800XT is plenty enough power for now..Maybe just a Single PCI-E Dfi
